Happy Monday! Once again, I’m sharing some of the awesomeness I’ve ran across on twitter and in my RSS feed over the last few weeks. I’m declaring these “must reads.”

## Teaching Angles

Julie Morgan is sharing more angle-awesomeness over at her blog, Fraction Fanatic, this week.

## Stoichiometry Puzzle

Amy Roediger shares an awesome stoichiometry puzzle that I believe all chemistry teachers need to check out! Check out Amy’s blog here.

## Composition of Functions Introduction Image

Need an image to introduce the idea of function composition? Steve Phelps has got you covered.

## Marshmallow Statistics Lab

Steve also shares a statistics labs where students compare the percentage of marshmallows in name brand Lucky Charms versus the store brand.

## Speed of a Moving Vehicle Activity

Gwen Bergman knows how to bring to life the real-world applications of math. Check out this lesson!

## 3D Printing Initials

MrsDillMath shares the results of a student project that combined writing equations, creating initials, and 3D printing. Awesome work!

## Desk Positivity

Allison Kipping has made a small change to her classroom desks for the new semester, and I think it’s a brilliant idea.

## Estimation Activity

Texas Teacher shares a fun estimation activity to get students talking and sharing ideas.

## Systems of Equations with M&M’s

Allison Hartwig has combined two of my loves: M&Ms and Systems of Equations. I can’t wait to adapt this activity to use with my own students!

## Geometry Scrapbooks

I’m incredibly inspired by the geometry scrapbooks that Jennifer Abel‘s students have created!

## Law of Syllogism Project

Also, check out this Law of Syllogism project!

## Exponential Decay with Bingo Chips

Liz Mastalio shares a great activity for modeling exponential decay that uses bingo chips and stickers.

## Household Dynamics

Looking to collect bivariate data with your students? Kerry Conrad shares a data collection idea that I wish I’d thought of myself!

## Fun Sized Candy Bars Scale Drawing Project

Looking for a fresh idea for scaled drawings? Katie Madigan suggests using fun-sized candy bars. How creative!

## Star Angle Problem

Debbie shares a “star” of a math problem!

## Two Truths and a Lie Gallery Walk with Recording Sheet

I love how Kathy Henderson took the Two Truths and a Lie template I shared and turned it into a gallery walk for her students.

## Unscramble the Conics Flow Chart

When I used to teach Algebra 2 (back when conics were still in the Oklahoma standards), I used to always give my students a conics flow chart. It was fill-in-the blank, and I loved it. Now, I’m wishing I had taken the lead of Sara Goldrick and had students unscramble and assemble a conics flow chart themselves!

## Super Bowl Add Graph

Leslie Lewis poses an interesting question for us to explore with our students regarding super bowl ad prices.

## Teaching Strategies Bulletin Board

Laura Wheeler shares how she is using wall-space in her classroom to display posters that describe her teaching strategies. I love this idea!

## Write Your Own Report Card Comment

Jamie Mitchell has me rethinking my current approach to report card comments.

## Notice and Wonder: Polynomials

I’ve always taught polynomial terminology as something to be memorized. I’m inspired by Paul Jorgens to approach the terminology from a notice/wonder standpoint this year instead.

## Times Table Graph

I found this graph shared by Cambridge Mathematics of which times tables students struggle with the most to be very interesting.

## Slope Task

cLarsen shares an awesome task to get students practicing slope and showing their work.

## Square Root Functions with Parachute Men

I could definitely do a better job of incorporating more data collection into my classroom. I especially like this idea of parachute men for square root functions from Jazmine Castanon.

## Multiplying Binomials Pennant Activity

Looking to pretty-up your classroom and give your students practice multiplying binomials? Check out Mrs. Richardson‘s latest blog post!

## Real World Systems of Equations

Have any remote controlled cars laying around your house? Then, you’re set to try out this systems of equations lesson from Heather Lintz.

## Data Cards

Anna Fergusson shares the brilliant idea of creating data cards to make scatterplots. Each data point is printed and cut out with a circle punch. There are multiple pieces of data about each datapoint on the circle, so you can easily change the scatterplot out to look at a different variable. Anna shares a set of data cards for you to print that focuses on Quick Draw data for cats.

Until next week, keep up the awesome sharing!
