Information for Teachers

Problems are organized into themes. A problem may have more than one theme.

These problems may be used in a variety of different ways including:

  • posting the problems in a classroom,
  • discussing the problems with students, and
  • integrating the problems into the curriculum.

We know that teachers will use these problems in many creative ways!

Solutions to the problems will be sent out to teachers one week after the problems are e-mailed.
