Problems of the Week: Getting Started
The Math Forum is pleased to announce a new, free, orientation
session designed to help you start using your Problems of the
Week membership. You can participate at any membership level,
including a Trial Account.
Currently we have two sessions scheduled:
- September 16 - 22, 2010
- September 30 - October 6, 2010
Each self-paced session includes activities to help you learn
about the different features of our Problems of the Week
service, such as:
- Current Problems
- Getting Students Started
- Problems of the Week Library
- Write Math with the Math Forum
- Student Accounts
- What's Next?
Each activity will be followed with discussion prompts to
encourage you to ask questions and/or discuss those features.
Register for the September 16-22 session now! Registration
closes at 5:00 pm (Eastern time) on Monday, September 13. That
is also the day registration opens for the session that begins
