Problem of the Week #9

 All problems can now be found here, on my new site:

It's 2016. That blows my mind. So many new ideas to think about, so many new things to try, so many hopes for the year! I hope the year will be good for you all!

This week's problem requires students to search for how many different combinations are possible for a password....can be challenging, depending on your students' background!

I hope you'll give it a try - if you do, please let me know how it goes! We have spent many days this school year giving our students the opportunity to "struggle" a bit with problems like these, and this had lead to great discussion, among the students AND the teachers.

Have a great Monday!

Exponents Color by Number For most of my school life as a student (and even as an adult, during PD), I have really liked doodling! During lectures, would help me focus, but also give me something to make me look busy, so I wouldn't get called on in class! I always hated being called on and almost never participated voluntarily:) I liked to draw cubes, rectangles, squiggly lines, etc, and color in different parts of the doodles. Download this freebie:-) I really wanted to make some color by number activities. Since I am not good at creating actual pictures, I decided to make my color by numbers similar to my random drawing/doodling. My Exponent Color by Number is most similar to my past doodles, but I thought it was a little too random, so I started using actual shapes. The Integer Operations Color by Number (freebie), as well as most of my other color by numbers are more structured, but so much fun for me to make! Computerized doodling! Anyone else
