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

"Many students received feedback on their work thanks to our
mentor group this week. I know that at least one student took
full advantage of the feedback that was given to her - Kathryn
revised her answer not once but twice, incorporating
suggestions from her mentor."

- Annie, commenting on the FunPoW's Latest Solution

"It makes a nice conceptual link, but the approximation is
really not very good. So it's a case of making a choice for
pedagogical reasons that is really not an optimal choice in
real life...."
