Welcome to Math at Planet Ward!
    New to Planet Ward:  Bonus Challenges.  (under construction) These will count as
    extra homework points!  That's right!  Do these problems, show your work, and if you
    get them right, you get credit for an extra homework assignment.  You can revise
    your work as many times as it takes to get the problems right and I'll be available to
    help.

    Each week, I'll have one or more Bonus Challenges in this homework page.  Click
    the link for Bonus Challenges and go for it!
