Solutions: 2013 Mathematics Game
http://mathforum.org/yeargames/ yeargameentrys?find=BySolutionFor&form
Got an expression for 83 using the digits in the year 2013,
standard operations, and grouping symbols? How about for 88?
Just a few hours ago, we posted all the correct solutions
submitted to the 2013 Mathematics Game; and through February,
we will continue accepting more — including for those last two
unsolved numbers!

PoW taking place: math problemsolving moment of the week

"Reflection: I did not show my thought process as clearly as I
would have liked. So on the extra, I am going to actually show
how my mind works. Scary. I was completely lost at the
beginning of the problem, but now I understand modular
arithmetic."

 Kenna, highlighted in the Algebra PoW's Latest Solution

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"We asked Dana Morse to come into our school today to show us
the new TI 84+ C. Really no changes other than a backlit LCD
color screen. BUT then he showed us the TINspire CX and we
were floored. The options are completely unlimited with it...."
