This is news from participants in the open online course Problem Solving for the Young, the Very Young, and the Young at Heart.
These are our course tasks and due dates.
By July 3: Sign up.
By July 7: Plan the first three problem groups and share the plans.
Most course activities happen at the question and answer forum. Only participants who answered the sign-up questions can post there. That’s why the sign-up questions are in a separate place. It’s lovely to see all the different participants and their goals! Many people share interests, such as board games.
