It’s January, and the beginning of a new calendar year. The NCTM Math Forum annually holds a contest for students to determine if they can use the digits in the year along with any of the operation symbols, a decimal point, and/or exponents to write expressions for each of the values 0-100.
Which ones are possible? Are any impossible with this year’s digits? The NCTM Math Forum has printable worksheets and manipulatives for children to use to solve and record the possible expressions.
