PoW taking place: math problemsolving moment of the week

"I found this problem really fun because it was one of those
problems where you have a lot of 'AHA!' moments and get really
excited because you know you're millimeters away from
finishing it."

 Tobias, highlighted in the FunPoW's latest solution

The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) has
three upcoming seminars dedicated to tools and strategies for

Hurry: the Dallas seminar now accepts only dayof registration
onsite; and the Hartford event — held in conjunction with the
NCTM regional mentioned above — has a registration deadline of
Wednesday, 10 October.

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"Thanks for the response. So I was hoping for some explanation
for the post that I placed. Can someone assist?"

WolframAlpha Now Goes One Step at a Time
http://blog.wolframalpha.com/2012/09/26/ introducingexpandedstepbystepmathsolutions/
WolframAlpha recently expanded the functionality of its
stepbystep solution feature.
The new interface lets you walk through all of WA's
stepbystep solutions at your own pace, revealing only one
step at a time. For common math problems, the
Mathematicapowered computational knowledge engine even shows
multiple ways to find the solutions.
With this expansion, WA also rolls out three new math content
areas that now feature stepbystep solutions:

solving equations

rational arithmetic

verifying trigonometric identities
