AlgPoW: "Operation Grid" - a small change, and Teacher Support

The current Algebra Problem of the Week has been running for a few
days and, after viewing the submissions that have come in so far,
we've made a slight change in the problem. The third question is now
considered extra. This shouldn't affect the submissions that have
come in so far, since we will be mentoring them with this in mind. We
feel that given that it's the beginning of the year, if students are
able to complete the second question, they're showing that they're
getting a grasp on the "point" of algebra. If they can do question
three, that's icing on the cake.

We've also got a Teacher Support page available at

Good luck to you and your students!


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.
