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

"We got confused and didn't know where to go next -- then we
realized, AHA! We also need to find the formula for the
circumference. We were making it too hard for ourselves! All we
really need to do is find how big each semi-circle is. After we
had talked to our teacher, she explained what we did wrong."

- Carly and Katherine, highlighted in the Pre-Algebra PoW's

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"The National Football Conference (NFC) has won the coin toss
for the past fourteen Super Bowls -- from the Super Bowl in
1998 to the Super Bowl in 2011. I think this could perhaps be
an interesting student project to investigate in more detail."
