Mentor groups will provide feedback to submitters in upcoming
problems opening on these dates:
 PreAlgPoW, February 15
 FunPoW and AlgPoW, February 22
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!

tPoWs Have Moved!
http://mathforum.org/tpow/
Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) are freely accessible
problemsolving challenges modeled on our Problems of the Week
that take advantage of interactive mathematics tools such as
Java applets, TINspire™, The Geometer's Sketchpad®,
Fathom™, and spreadsheets.
We are moving the tPoWs from the old software system to a new
one. You may use either system during this transitional
period. The tPoWs are free, but require a login—if you have a
login for the Problems of the Week or KenKen, you can use that,
or sign up for a free login using the instructions on the site.
From Fish to Infinity
http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/fromfishtoinfinity/
Steven Strogatz, a professor of applied mathematics at Cornell
University, has just embarked on a severalweek tour of
mathematics from an adult perspectivefrom the basics of math
to the baffling. This New York Times series is not meant to be remedial, but rather
to give readers a better feeling for what math is all about and
why it's so enthralling to those who get it.
