This problem set closes out two big ideas: finding formulas for the area and incircle radius of a triangle. It’s all spelled out in today’s problem set.
Five more problem sets to go! Have a great weekend.

Apologies for the late posting of today’s set. There were some last-minute edits to bad jokes about the US Women’s Soccer team.
A brief description of the “salt activity”:

As noted before, it might be best to start with Problem Set #1, but since PCMI has new attendees week-to-week, we try to give a “fresh start” on Monday with a new direction for the course. Enjoy!
And don’t forget to pick up your free Slurpee. It is 7/11, after all.

It’s Friday… looking forward to the weekend?
Here is today’s PCMI problem set. At the end of this session, participants were asked to write some things they had learned and some things they were still wondering about, and we’ll post that list here sometime soon. Enjoy!

We are publishing the daily problem sets from the Park City Mathematics Institute’s content course here. Starting with Problem Set #1 is a good idea! These problem sets are paced for two hours, not to complete them in two hours!
We apologize if you start singing about the number 12 for no reason.
Thanks and pass the word around if you like. PCMI @ Mathforum contains the archive of previous years’ material.

We are publishing the daily problem sets from the Park City Mathematics Institute’s content course here. You should probably start with Problem Set #1! If you comment, do so in a way that doesn’t directly answer questions asked, or point to your own blog. We apologize for our horrible, horrible sense of humor (or lack thereof).
