As users of the Problems of the Week, I thought you might be
interested in taking a look at an experimental PoW project that is
called ESCOT PoW (Educational Software Components of Tomorrow). We are
in our second year and this year the problems are available using a
regular browser.

Although it is necessary to download some software to get started, I
think the problems have great potential! Each of them has a java
applet page that allows students to interact with the problem. This is
a middle school project but teachers have told us that upper
elementary and also first year high school students might find the
problems interesting and challenging.

In my role at the Math Forum I correspond with teachers who are using
the problem and I have put some of these letters on the Web. They may
have some interesting background information:

You'll also notice that the Escot Pow page:

has six links at the top that also provide additional information

We hope you try these problems, and that they are useful to you and
your students. Please send your comments to this list.
