tPoWs
Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) are problem-solving challenges modeled on the Math Forum's Problems of the Week that take advantage of interactive mathematics tools such as Java applets, TI-Nspire™, The Geometer's Sketchpad®, Fathom™, or spreadsheets.

You!
1. tPoW Submissions
Your students are invited to use the link Submit your answer to share their solutions, and then self-mentor using specially designed hints, checks, and suggestions for extensions.
 
2. Scoring Rubric
Good problem solving and strong mathematical communication are both important aspects of a tPoW solution. Solutions should include enough information to help another student understand the steps and the decisions that were made in solving the problem.
