Free Mentoring, PoWs Calendar
http://mathforum.org/pow/free_mentoring.html
A mentor group will be providing feedback to submitters in
upcoming problems opening on these dates:
 GeoPoW, September 21
 FunPoW and AlgPoW, October 12
 PreAlgPoW, October 19
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!
We have reformatted the page of PoW support documents to serve
as a calendar, so you can see when problems are active and
when free mentoring opportunities are available.
