                 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS

Algebra, Trig/Calc POWs | Resources - Math Central |
Montessori Math Album ALGEBRA & TRIGONOMETRY/CALCULUS PROBLEMS OF THE WEEK http://mathforum.org/algpow http://mathforum.org/calcpow Two new high school POWs administered by the Math Forum are up and running. Algebra and Trig/Calculus questions reflecting different levels of difficulty are drawn from a variety of sources: textbooks, math contests, NCTM books, puzzle books, and real-life situations. The goal is to challenge students with non-routine problems and encourage them to put their solutions into words. Each problem offers comments on the most recent question, highlighted solutions, an archive of past problems and solutions, a FAQ, and a page of information about how to join the projects with a link to a Mentor Registration Form: http://mathforum.org/algpow/1998_99mentors/ http://mathforum.org/calcpow/1998_99mentors/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- RESOURCE ROOM - CENTRE DE RESSOURCES Math Central, University of Regina, Saskatchewan English: http://MathCentral.uregina.ca/RR/ French: http://MathCentral.uregina.ca/fRR/ A service that allows mathematics educators to share resources having to do with math teaching.
