The Math Forum's Problem Solving Process

This course aligns well with the Math Forum's Problems of the Week but could also be used to develop techniques to use with problem solving prompts in general. Participants are not required to have a Problem of the Week (PoW) Membership, although at the end of the course, they may find value in considering that as a logical next step as a resource for their students.
