Yes, once again we will have available to every student...

A certificate that your teacher will accept instead of one of your math homework assignments?  That's right.

But...are such things possible?  Well, Math Night has made a great deal with your teachers:
If you come to Math Night you can get a coupon worth One Free Math Homework. You come to Math Night, have a great time, play with some math toys, solve some puzzles, check out the books and games for sale...and you don't have to miss it just because you had a math homework due.  (Ask your teacher for details on which assignments would qualify for the coupon)  You have to show up to get the coupon, so put Math Night on your calendar now. 

How do I get one?  Look for the sign at Math Night saying "Free Homework Coupon" and politely ask the nice people at the table for one.
