PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week

"Many students received feedback on their work thanks to our mentor group this week. I know that at least one student took full advantage of the feedback that was given to her - Kathryn revised her answer not once but twice, incorporating suggestions from her mentor."
- Annie, commenting on the FunPoW's Latest Solution

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"It makes a nice conceptual link, but the approximation is really not very good. So it's a case of making a choice for pedagogical reasons that is really not an optimal choice in real life...."
- Bob, posted to the ap-stat discussion

Problems of the Week: Getting Started


Beginning March 17th, the Math Forum starts another free week-long 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.

Each self-paced session includes activities to help you learn about the different features of our Problems of the Week service, such as:

  • What's Next?

Each activity will be followed with discussion prompts to encourage you to ask questions and/or discuss those features.
