Congratulations to all the students who figured out the last Problem of
the Week, "March Madness"!  If there are 16 basketball teams in four
regions and each team plays until they lose one game, then the answer is
that there are 63 games in the tournament.  We had 85 students submit
solutions, with a great showing by third grade! Congratulations 3rd
