We haven't had too many free mentoring opportunities in the Pre-Algebra Problem of the Week this year. I wanted to alert you to one that starts Monday, May 16 for the problem: Forming Triangles from a Folding Ruler

It just previewed today and will be available through May 29. You can use the link at the bottom of the PreAlg page to view it:
http://mathforum.org/prealgpow/

In Forming Triangles from a Folding Ruler, students are asked to describe the three triangles that can be made with the full length of a 6 foot long folding wooden ruler.

This PoW could be used to talk about:
* acute
* equilateral
* isosceles
* obtuse
* perimeter
* right
* scalene
* triangles
* Triangle Inequality Property

We would love it if your students submit solutions. If your students receive replies from a mentor, encourage them to revise. Not only will your students learn more, but the mentors will learn as well!

Sincerely,
Suzanne
