Free Mentoring Opportunities
http://mathforum.org/pow/free_mentoring.html
Mentor groups from Oregon, Utah, Minnesota, Missouri, and California will
provide feedback to students who submit to problems that open on these dates:
 FunPoW: November 1
 PreAlgPoW: October 25, November 8
 AlgPoW: November 1
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!

Have you used the free AskaMathematician service ASKNRICH? If
so, researchers from the University of Cambridge want to hear
about your experiences. Read more at the site
above.
If you are a 1017yearold resident of England, Scotland, or Wales, who is "really good at maths," or are the parent or teacher of someone
who is, NRICH has another research activity in which they ask
you to participate.
