Students and parents of students should read my introduction to letterboxing before seeking the boxes, although most if it does not apply to a virtual letterbox.

 
This is a virtual letterbox, which means that the entire search for the "box" is done online on the computer.  To "find" this box, you must solve a series of seven mathematical clues.  As you go from clue page to clue page, you will need to research Wisconsin sports history and use the information in a mathematical expression or equation.  The resulting answer is used in the URL to get you to the next clue page.  Once you have successfully completed all of the clues, you will arrive at the last page which will tell you how to claim your "box" stamp.  Good luck!
