Solve It Your Way 2014-2015

Welcome to a new school year!  This year, we thought we'd give classrooms and students more options.  Instead of giving a question a month, all of the questions will be listed below so teachers and students can choose the question they want to solve.  There were so many great responses last year that we want everyone to continue to have access to those too. So the question below will be linked to last year's question with link-up. That way, you can learn from other classes who explored the same question.

In the comments to this post, tell us when you've finished a challenge question and include a link to your work. (Last year, we had blog posts, videos, etc.). We'll share those through Twitter and this site throughout the year.

Have a great year!
