Problem Solving Resources at The Math Forum
At the Math Forum @ Drexel we ask students to write solutions to our Problems of the Week (PoWs) that explain both their process and their reasoning. We often ask students and their teachers to think of this process similar to the writing process. The point is not to quickly get it over and done but to think, reflect, revise and master.
