The latest Math Fundamentals Problem of the Week, "Catching Up!", goes
live on Monday, November 4. Our Teacher Support page includes links
to resources about teaching and comparing fractions, as well as links
to calendar lessons. It's available here:

Catching Up! will be mentored by some of our regular mentors as well
as by a group of Education students at Drexel University. They are
looking forward to working with your students!

I think this is a good problem for introducing the idea of comparing
fractions. Students who have little experience with fractions can
still solve this problem. I'd appreciate any feedback you have about
it - just send me email or post a reply to this message.


Kristina Lasher was an elementary teacher before joining the Math
Forum staff. She writes some of the Fun PoWs and can often be caught
mentoring student submissions.
