Library of Problems of the Week (14 April 2001)
The Math Forum's Library of Problems of the Week organizes the archives of the six services for browsing by mathematics and story topic, rates problems for difficulty level, and provides for searching by keyword. Once submissions to current Math Forum Problems of the Week (PoWs) have received responses from mentors, problems and highlighted solutions are archived in chronological order by service. Teachers, however, have asked us for an archive of problems by topic, and we've designed this Library of Problems to meet their needs. In addition, for the elementary and middle-school levels, we provide links to the NCTM Standard(s) addressed by each topic.
