Online Course: PoW Class Membership


After completing this six-week 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.
