Mentor groups from Oregon and Pennsylvania will provide feedback to students who submit to problems that open on these dates:

  • FunPoW: January 31, February 14
  • PreAlgPoW: February 7, February 21
  • AlgPoW: February 14

Please have your students submit solutions; and if they receive replies from a mentor, encourage them to revise. Not only will your students learn more, but the mentors will learn as well!

Want to get in on the fun, but don't have a membership? Register a trial account, which lets you submit to the Current Problems of the Week for 21 days, and access the Problems of the Week Library, too:
