Free Mentoring Opportunity

http://mathforum.org/pow/

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!
