Don't Give Them 50 Math Problems if They Can Only Do 10 to Prove Mastery. Sheesh.

Teacherfilter: I had a crazy idea and want to know how/if I can make this work. The problem?

Not to be overconfident, but want to mention I've been nominated as Teacher of the Year in my state, but more importantly, I've become the go-to confidante for almost all of my students.
