Macalester Problem of the Week (14 September 2012)
MacPOW is back! After a semester's hiatus, Stan Wagon, of Macalester College, has resumed posting a mathematics problem to his students every week. The Math Forum posts these problems and keeps an archive of past problems. Over 365 challenging, undergraduate math problems are available in our archive, dating back seventeen years.
Unsilence Students' Voices (7 September 2012)
Suzanne Alejandre, the Math Forum's Director of Professional Development, has written a journal article based on her classroom visits and a conference presentation. "Unsilence Students' Voices" discusses how to provide an opportunity for all students to contribute to math classroom discussions. The free three page-long download intersperses teaching tips throughout its three sections:
  • Too Many Voices/Too Little Time
  • Lack of Fluency in the Language
  • Moving from Passive to Active Learners
The article, which appears in the current issue of the CMC ComMuniCator, concludes with links at the Forum for related articles, conference presentations, and Problem of the Week resources.
