PoW - a good idea?

This discussion is part of a collection:Great Sources of Rich Problems

The sample PoW packets in this collection are really interesting! Can someone who has a membership please let me know about your experiences using them?


Please give more information about the PoW packets.

The sample packets in the collection are great! They should realworld problems with multiple solutions. I would definitely use these in my classroom as weekly challenges. I might even consider putting students into cooperative goups once a month to have them try and solve several of these together and show multiple ways of solving. The memberships seems pretty reasonable $25 for a teacher per year, that includes one class and then $10 for each additional class.
