EFFECTIVE TEACHING WITH THE MATH FORUM'S PROBLEMS OF THE WEEK

http://mathforum.org/pd/

The Math Forum has developed best practices in supporting
mathematical thinking and communication exhibited by students
participating in the Problems of the Week (PoW), based on
mentoring thousands of students' problem-solving and carefully
researching what helped students reflect, revise, and learn.

This trio of six week-long courses begins in January
and February:

- PoW Class Membership: Resources & Strategies for
Effective Implementation
- Learning from Student Work: Make the Most of Your
PoW Membership
- Mentor Your Own: Supporting Strong Development of
Mathematical Practices

We've designed these as a three-course sequence, so we
encourage PoW members who have already taken the "PoW Class
Membership" course to enroll in "Learning from Student Work";
and those who have completed "Learning from Student Work" to
register for "Mentor Your Own."

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

"I also learned to use the rubric to see if I am doing
things right."

- Twenty, highlighted in the FunPoW's Latest Solution

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"Construct the lines passing through the centroid parallel to
each of the three sides of ABC. The six points of intersection
between those lines and the sides of ABC trisect the the sides
of ABC. The trisection points and the centroid determine nine
congruent triangles similar to ABC. That is so regardless of
the size of ABC's angles."
