Online Course: PoW Class Membership
http://mathforum.org/pd/membership/
After completing this sixweek course, you as a current
subscriber of the Problems of the Week (PoWs) will be familiar
with all of the features and resources associated with your
PoW membership access. You will be able to make an informed
decision about how to start implementing PoWs with your
students, and you'll have an idea of further steps to try when
you are ready.
The next session of this course runs from August 20 through
September 30. Registration closes at 5 pm EDT on Friday,
August 14, 2009.
A reminder: The Problems of the Week will be unavailable from
July 31 through August 4 while we make the transition between
the current system and our new improved version. We hope you'll
appreciate the upgrade! We're preparing materials now to help
orient you to the new site.

CPMPTools is a suite of both general purpose and custom
software tools designed to support student investigation and
problem solving in the 2nd edition CorePlus Mathematics texts.
Software for Courses 1, 2, and 3 has been completed. Software
for Course 4 is still in development.
The CorePlus Mathematics Program was one of five designated
as "exemplary" by the U.S. Department of Education in 1999:
