Along with suggested instructional notes each month, teachers are given a problem and asked to use it in their own classrooms and report solutions, strategies, reflections, and misconcep┬Čtions to the journal audience. The winter months often keep students involved in such extracurricular activities as competing in sports, dancing, or playing a musical instrument. This set of problems involves a real-life scenario about scheduling basketball games for the local gym and offers students the opportunity to show their creativity in using elapsed time.
