The Current Problems include: Primary (PrimaryPoW) Math Fundamentals (FunPoW), Pre-Algebra (PreAlgPoW), Algebra (AlgPoW), Geometry (GeoPoW), and Trig & Calculus (TrigCalcPoW).
We think of these grade bands as the appropriate level of mathematics for each of the problems but sometimes PrimaryPoWs may work well with high school students and/or GeoPoWs may work well with middle school students: FunPoW, AlgPoW and TrigCalcPoW are on the same two week schedule. PrimaryPoW, PreAlgPoW and GeoPoW are on another two week schedule. If teachers want a new problem each week they can offer students a FunPoW one week and a PreAlgPoW another week (or other combinations). The Current Problems run on a schedule described like this:
- a problem
**previews**on a Thursday - a problem is open for
**submissions**on a Monday - the
**submissions**stay open for two weeks - if a student has submitted during that two week time span, they can
**revise**to be considered for "highlighting" until midnight Thursday - Friday morning the
**Latest Solution**link will display both our commentary and a selection of highlighted student solutions **NOTE:**the idea that the problem**closes**now only refers to the activity with our volunteer mentors and/or having a student's solution considered for publishing on our website. Students may submit to the Current Problems listed on the Calendar page at any time and they can revise their solutions at any time.
One reason that we opened problems up in this way is to provide the opportunity to consider a student's online PoW submissions as an This |
