When and Where Winners are Posted
Winners and honorable mentions will be announced around the middle of the following month. They will be posted to the geometry.pre-college newsgroup, and will be available from the POM main page.
Format of the Solutions
Some general comments will be made about the solutions, including why the winners won, and why other teams received honorable mention - it's often the case that more than one team gets the right solution, but that one group provides a superior explanation or a more general solution. The winners and their solution will appear next, including my comments on the strong and weak points of their presentation. Then any honorable mentions will be included, along with my comments. It's my hope that the students recognized, as well as others reading the solutions, will learn from the comments included with the solutions.
Students on the winning team will receive certificates and Geometry Forum t-shirts or key chains - they're both really cool! A certificate will also be provided to the supervising teacher if there is one (there doesn't have to be).
