I can’t believe that this is the 100th volume of Monday Must Reads! It seems like just yesterday that I had the idea to start highlighting the awesome math ideas I saw being shared on twitter here on my blog.
Of course, it feels like just yesterday that I decided to even start writing a math teaching blog. This is currently year 11 in the classroom for me, and I started blogging while I was still studying education at university.
I hope you find an idea or two worth trying out in your own classroom from this 100th edition of Monday Must Reads!

Becky Lindenmuth inspires with some interactive math puzzle bulletin boards!
Mr. Canning shares a great backwards-thinking task for right triangle trig!
I really like how Alison Locke structured this chemistry activity as having students create their own “museum.”
