Abstract:  We ask teachers: When it comes to problem solving, have you ever become frustrated? Do you struggle with How to start?

In this talk we will describe the Impact Center’s involvement with the national program Math Teachers’ Circles which was initiated by the American Institute of Mathematics. We will present a typical MTC problem that has been used in one of the recent sessions in New Hampshire.

Be ready to actively participate in problem solving!
