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

"I couldn't find any possibilities. So I already knew the
answer was no. But to help prove that point, I did a little
extra math to prove what I just said. First I used
the formula...."

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

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"By March, the students were able to figure out the question to
the problem without it being present. When they were noticing
and wondering, they began to notice the answer, which blew me
away! By April, their explanations were close to perfect,
giving great detail on how they solved the problem and even
using correct math vocabulary. The students went from hating
them to loving them! This program took a group of struggling
math achievers last year and helped them tremendously. I
believe it helped them make gains much quicker over
conventional teaching methods. At the beginning of the year,
the students were 18 percent proficient or advanced on the open
ended responses on the math 4Sight Benchmarks. By May, the
students rose to 88 percent. I believe that the consistency of
using the Problems of the Week is the main reason for
the rise."

ESTIMATION 180

http://www.estimation180.com/

Each day of the school year, Andrew Stadel presents his middle
school students with an estimation challenge. Last month, he
started sharing their number sense-making online.

Check out his "Estimate of the Week" on the estimation180.com
home page -- and join the challenge by looking at the picture
and submitting your own estimate online. Make sure to explain
your reasoning ("What context clues did you use?") and rate
your accuracy ("How confident are you?"). Then check back for
the video answers.

Stadel also blogs "about my interactions with math, logic,
life, teaching, and the web they spin together." Posts at
"Divisible by 3," which date back to March, include "Estimation
vs. guessing Part 2," "PEMDAS song," "3 Act Presentation to K-8
staff," and "Rolling Tires":
