PROBLEMS OF THE WEEK

http://mathforum.org/pow/

The Problems of the Week (PoWs) have kicked off for the
2013-2014 academic year! See when submissions open, solutions
post, and free mentoring opportunities become available by
consulting the PoW calendar:

http://mathforum.org/pow/support/

Teachers with Full Memberships or higher can still view PoWs
from the 2012-13 academic year:

http://mathforum.org/pow/support/1213index.html

By working with the primary teachers at one of our school
district partners recently, we've developed new activity
sheets for the strategies

- Understand the Problem
- Guess and Check
- Make a Table
- Use Logical Reasoning
- Change the Representation

These supporting resources extend our Problem Solving and
Communication Activity Series:

http://mathforum.org/pow/support/activityseries/

"The teacher of that two-year algebra course taught CommonCore
last year as we were not sure about how the new regents exams
were going to be rolled in at that time and figured it was
better to switch."

MATH MUNCH

http://mathmunch.org/

Do you love the burst of excitement that you get from reading
about a new mathematical idea, seeing an original piece of math
artwork, or trying out a new game?

From beach math art to origami mazes, Math Munch has blogged
about "cool mathy things" regularly since October, 2011. This
summer, the three teachers behind Math Munch began embedding
forms to gather questions from their readers, which they then
raise in Q&A's with the mathematicians, artists, and others
featured. Throughout, they've collected and annotated their
favorite online mathematical games:

http://mathmunch.org/games/

Last week, Math Munch announced a campaign to encourage its
audience to share the mathmunch.org site with others so that
"more people have great encounters with mathematics":

http://mathmunch.org/our-share-campaign/

With less than a week to go towards a goal of 1,000 individual
shares, the trio who write about "the mathematical Internet"
still seek "personal acts of sharing" Math Munch, such as

- telling a friend
- posting on Facebook
- writing a blog post
- emailing a colleague
- showing it to your kid
- tweeting about @MathMunch

Or hang one of their flyers in your community:

http://mathmunch.org/math-munch-flyers/

students, subscribe to their educators mailing list:
