Mortensen http://mathforum.org/mathworld/ Middle school students are invited to visit the recently re-launched MathWorld Interactive site and solve its open-ended word problems. Challenges for students in grades 6-8 will be issued every nine weeks. Students are asked to follow a specific format: - write what you know about the problem (the facts) - write what you are looking for (the questions) - write all your problem-solving strategies - write your solutions (the answers) - explain how you checked your work - extend the problem by writing a new problem based on the original Participants use an on-line form or use the MathWorld Interactive email address to submit their solutions. Sweepstakes winners receive email award certificates. All students receive awards highlighting their strengths and achievements posted online in the MathWorld Interactive Hall of Fame. http://mathforum.org/mathworld/fame.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/discussions/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
