AlgPoW Teacher Support  "Explaining a Number Trick"
Posted:
Sep 26, 2002 2:04 PM


The second Algebra Problem of the Week, "Explaining a Number Trick", went live on Monday. We're just finishing up responses to the first Algebra PoW and will start on these soon. Make sure to encourage your students to not only view the "answer check", but to then give us some feedback about how they think they did. At this point we're only writing back to those students, as we're focusing a lot of energy on our capacity for training new volunteer mentors.
To go along with this problem, we've written a Teacher Support page, which you can find at:
http://mathforum.org/pow/support/algpow/explain.teacher.html
Our hope is to provide these pages for future problems as well. You can see all of our Teacher Support pages at

Good luck!
Annie
 Annie Fetter is primarily responsible for the Geometry and Algebra Problems of the Week. She writes most of those problems and is currently doing a lot of the mentoring, but is developing materials to train other mentors so that they can share the fun.
