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

"Marissa, from Gideon Welles School, took advantage of the rich

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"I'm using an episode of Numb3rs to talk about strength of
schedule in the NFL and the need for standardizing values. It
comes with an accompanying activity from TI."
