PoW Class Membership: Resources & Strategies for Effective Implementation
June 17 - July 28
http://mathforum.org/pd/membership/

This course will familiarize current subscribers of the Problems of the Week (PoWs) with 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.

Participation requires Problem of the Week membership at the Class level or higher. Purchase or renew your PoW Class membership by June 30th and pay only $70 for this course, a savings of $79.

Moving Students from Arithmetic to Algebra ...one step at a time
July 29 - August 13 [two-week intensive]
http://mathforum.org/pd/movingstudents/

In this course we will examine a continuum of student work from the Math Forum's Problems of the Week archive. Selected work will include a range of examples from "not knowing how to start" to "It's perfect. What could I possibly say to her?" We will consider specific ways to move students' thinking along this continuum.

Purchase or renew your PoW Class membership by June 30th and pay only $70 for this course, a savings of $79. Membership is not required for this course.


Summer Problems of the Week

http://mathforum.org/pows/

Every two weeks from June through August, we will continue to post challenging word problems and accept solutions to them. We encourage teachers with class, school, or district memberships to design summer projects that draw on Current Problems or past PoWs, such as the selection from the Problems of the Week Library highlighted last spring:

We will have only a few volunteers doing mentoring; and our responses will otherwise be scaled back as we get ready for a new series of problems at the end of August.

Trial Class Accounts are available:
