A mentor group will be providing feedback to submitters in
the Pre-Algebra Problem of the Week that is active from
May 11 - May 24.
Please have your students submit solutions. If they receive
replies from a mentor, we hope you'll encourage them to revise.
Not only will your students learn more, but the mentors will
learn as well!
