Welcome to the Math Forum a WebCT community. We have several ambitious goals planned for our Problems of the Week session today. They are:
The Math Forum's Problems of the Week (PoWs) are designed to provide creative, non-routine challenges for students in grades three through twelve. Problem-solving and mathematical communication are key elements of every problem.
There are six different problems offered each week:
A new problem is posted each Monday from September through May. Students are encouraged by our mentors to revise their submissions, correct any mathematical errors, and/or improve their explanation of the problem.
For teachers using the Problems of the Week in a classroom, we can provide information on the status of your students' submissions. Go to http://mathforum.org/pow/teacher.html to view a sample account page.
To get an account for your school, we ask that you complete an online registration for a Teacher Account [http://mathforum.org/pow/teacher/] and mail your request on school letterhead to the attention of Problems of the Week Staff at:
The Math Forum
Teachers are also invited to join the Problem of the Week Discussion group at http://mathforum.org/discuss/pow-teach/. This list has been established to facilitate conversation around the Math Forum's Problems of the Week. We invite input from teachers who have used these problems in their classrooms, and from teachers who have questions concerning how they can implement the problems in their curricula.
