Problem of the Week

In addition to assignments, quizzes and tests, students will develop math skills through the weekly enrichment activity, or Problem of the Week (POW). This problem will be due the last day of each week (normally Thursday). Each POW has four parts - the main problem and three exercises which further develop the strategy introduced in the main problem.
