Hello. I need a funny acronym for the math club at school.
The phrase is: Math Weekly Challenge Question

You can substitute Challenge with Bonus or something else but it has to make sense and carry the above meaning. This is tough, isn't it?

That is a tough one... how much more can you expand?

Just a thought.... maybe we brainstorm on more options. So...

What grade is this? What age are you appealing to? What level of math are you trying to teach?

I assume this will be above-average questions for that level. Will they win some kind of prize?

Just thinking... maybe there are some other ways to approach it in addition to the one you have here.

Hi ibo,

!(42): The Weekly Math Hitchhiking Puzzle
Brought to you by the Math Hitchhiker's Club -
And the Answer is Not 42!

Prove that Not 42! == !(42)? It depends on ignoring the ?, and choosing the notational conventions of your expression language.

I'm just playing here with the notion Is the Universe Acutally Made of Math? and coupling it with Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy references.

-- Tom

P.S. There must be an acronym in there somewhere! :) Something like the
Weekly Big Bang Challenge - the Collision of Branes

Weekly
Arithmetical
Challenge
Kwestion
Awesome!! I sat around racking my brain on this. I was too left-brained to change to a K for that. :)

I was hoping to brainstorm with the OP about other ideas too. They could do this for a while, then maybe another one after that.

I think it's cool when people are motivating/working to improve learning environments.(y)

Thank you but I ba$tardized question with great trepidation but foul letters and no vowels spelled certain death for any understandable acronym. Note how I had to substitute math to get a usable vowel.

Well, this is going to be a club mainly compsed of the Gr.12 AP Advanced Functions class. It will be an association where we will organize and hand out 5-minute brainskrewers to every math class in the school. And since we are supposed to be the most brilliant people in the school, we will be marking the questions and getting more and more people to like math.
The problem that people just ignore math genericaly all over society and there are people who never give it a chance. I'm trying to reshape a small part of this community, because I think that math is a very powerful weapon.
About the acronym: theoritically, every word is substitutable except Math. It is indeed hard for me.

Then you need at least one vowel to make a word out of it.

Yeah..I noticed that there is no vowel. You're right - there is no word without a vowel. But by changing some of the words, a vowel can be discovered.
For example, changing Math for Arithmetical is a valid example, although it changes the meaning because Algebra is only a small part of Math, the concept, and Arithmetic is only a small part of Algebra itself. There will be Geometric, Word, Picture and Riddle problems in this*****(acronym), too.
