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

 "I thought that this PoW was very hard. It took me a while to
 figure everything out.... I liked this problem because it made
 me think a lot."

 - Deborah, highlighted in the Algebra PoW's latest solution



 In the coming week, we'll post students' solutions and mentors'
 commentary for the last cycle of Current Problems of the Week
 (PoWs) for the 2016-2017 academic year. To honor your
 Mathematical Wordsmiths, Deep Conceptual Thinkers, Noticer and
 Wonderer Extraordinaires, and other great problem solvers,
 download our PoW certificates of participation. Originally
 suggested to us by a teacher member, these free PDFs suitable
 for end-of-the-year ceremonies have blank spaces for
 student names.


    Now taking place: Math education conversation of the day

 "And he's going out with a bang, as his Academic Team won the
 Oklahoma State Championship in February and Gordon was named
 Oklahoma Academic Competition Association Coach of the Year
 for the second time."

 - Annie, posted to her blog
