http://mathforum.org/pow/support/
The Problems of the Week (PoWs) have kicked off for the
20122013 academic year with two exciting additions!
First, we've relaunched a Current PoW for trigonometry and
calculus students:

Second, we've begun enlivening select past puzzles with brief
video clips — most 30 seconds or shorter:

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"Dr. Thurston was my honors calculus teacher at Princeton. We
undergrads got a kick out of having someone so 'out there' as
our teacher. I appreciated his gentle manner and
earnest enthusiasm."

"I was thinking of how fun it would be to make a YouTube video
in which all the concepts and theorems of calculus were
demonstrated and proven visually, something a high schooler
might want to watch for fun. Have there been any videos created
yet that serve this purpose?"
