Integrating Across the Curriculum – Math, Science, Literature and Technology
Problem of the Week
The Math Forum's Problems of the Week (PoWs) provide creative, non-routine challenges for students in grades three through high school geometry and algebra. Problem solving and mathematical communication are key elements of every problem. PoWs can enrich your regular math curriculum as well as help you meet the needs of your most capable math students.
Four Services currently available:
Students may work with a partner or team.
Teacher Support Pages and Discussion Groups support teachers and mentors.
To the extent possible submissions are scored, based on a rubric, and given feedback with suggestions for improvement. Our research demonstrates the value of revision!
Occasionally preservice teachers provide mentoring as they learn how to develop children’s problem solving skills (indicated by * next to the problem in calendar). Mentors may also include Math Forum staff and trained volunteers.
Guaranteed mentoring by Math Forum staff is available on a fee basis.
