Participation in the Trig/Calculus Problems of the Week allows teachers and students to address the NCTM Problem Solving Standard for Grades 9-12, enabling students to build new mathematical knowledge through problem solving; solve problems that arise in mathematics and in other contexts; apply and adapt a variety of appropriate strategies to solve problems; and monitor and reflect on the process of mathematical problem solving.

For background information elsewhere on our site, explore the High School Trigonometry and Calculus areas of the Ask Dr. Math archives. To find relevant sites on the Web, browse and search Trigonometry and Calculus (Single Variable) in our Internet Mathematics Library.
