MathCounts Problem of the Week Information
Each week MATHCOUNTS releases a multi-step problem related to a current event, holiday, or season. The Problem of the Week is a great way to start math class or a team practice. Students can work on one part of the problem or the entire set. Best of all, the solutions for each problem set are released the following week. All can be downloaded for free at www.mathcounts.org/potw.
