## Problem Solving

## New: Coming in September, 2015

Your students are invited to submit answers to a new set of math problems beginning the first week of September, 2015, continuing through the first week of June, 2016. Students will correct answers will be celebrated in a new math hall of fame. Answers received during the target week (through Sunday evening) will be graded and marked for Hall of Fame updates.

Students are welcome to solve and submit answers to "off-week" problems at any time, but only answers sent during the target week are guaranteed to be scored regularly. Due to multiple other projects, I am unable to score all the fantastic thinking and solutions students have been sending in to the old problem-solving sets, so they are not updated regularly. I will, however, be scoring these new problems week to week, with a possible delay during conferences and report card seasons. My class looks forward to learning with yours this year!

## Chez Moi - Cafe-Themed Math Problem of the Week

Each of our cafe-themed math problems includes common core standards.

Students submit their answers online, through the contact form on each page.

For each correct problem, we post the student's first name and city to the "Menu of Excellence" (look for your name at the bottom of that week's problem). Problem-solvers with the highest totals will be included (and much admired) in the Problem Solving Hall of Fame. (Please note that answers to these problems are no longer regularly updated - see above - but you are welcome to continue working on the problems and submitting your answers; they will be updated occasionally. The same is true for the Pet Shop Problem-Solving series.)
