 ```24 May 2004 Vol. 9, No. 21 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Math Tools Technology PoW (tPoW) | Moneyopolis Olympic Web Quest MATH TOOLS TECHNOLOGY POW (tPoW) http://mathforum.org/tpow/ The newest area of the Math Forum site, Math Tools, has just unveiled its most recent feature, the Technology PoW. The tPoWs are modeled on the Math Forum's Problems of the Week, with the additional feature that these problems take advantage of online, interactive mathematics tools. Although we are not mentoring submissions to the tPoWs, we do invite students to follow to follow the link to "Submit your answer" to share their solutions, and then "self-mentor" using specially designed hints, checks, and suggestions for extensions. If your students use these features, we would be very interested in receiving feedback from you. Please use the "Discuss this item" links. With more on the way soon, our current tPoWs include: How Many Cubes? http://mathforum.org/tpow/index2.ehtml?puzzle=201 Galactic Exchange http://mathforum.org/tpow/index2.ehtml?puzzle=202 To access the Technology PoW link from within the Math Tools area, look at the right sidebar, under RESOURCES, and select "Technology tPoWs" from: http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MONEYOPOLIS http://www.moneyopolis.com/ Moneyopolis, a free, educational Web site for children in grades six through eight, was created by Ernst & Young LLP.
