PROBLEMS OF THE WEEK: GETTING STARTED

http://mathforum.org/pd/orientation_pow/

The Math Forum is pleased to announce a new, free, orientation

Each self-paced session includes activities to help you learn
about the different features of our Problems of the Week
service, such as:

- Current Problems
- Getting Students Started
- Problems of the Week Library
- Write Math with the Math Forum
- Student Accounts
- Discussions
- What's Next?

Each activity will be followed with discussion prompts to
encourage you to ask questions and/or discuss those features.

Register for the September 16-22 session now! Registration
closes at 5:00 pm (Eastern time) on Monday, September 13. That
is also the day registration opens for the session that begins
September 30.

MATH FOR LOVE

http://mathforlove.tumblr.com/

Daniel Finkel brings us this blog "... about math, creativity,
culture, education, and beauty. It's for everyone." The most
recent posts have focused on self-referential humor and
mathematics; older posts have included:

- the joys of pattern blocks
- an aspect of probability applied to forest fires
- an anecdote from a highly successful unorthodox school
- "From Problem to Question to Proof to Problem"
