# Monday Must Reads: Volume 51

Post Contents

Somehow, it is once again Monday. So, let’s celebrate this new week with some lovely twitter awesomeness from my fellow teachers around the world.

## Circle Theorems Bulletin Board

Nicola Amies inspires with this beautiful, student-made circle theorems bulletin board

## Exclamation Point Area Question

Calculus Teachers! Check out this exclamation point based area question from Simon Ball!

## Flower Logic Puzzle

If calculus isn’t your thing, this puzzle from Simon Ball is also lovely. I believe this is equivalent to the tent puzzles I blogged about several years ago.

Mrs. Allan shares a Christmas gift idea that could also work well as an end-of-year gift for students in your math club.

## Miniature Hersheys Proportions Lesson

Rachael Gorsuch shares a yummy proportionality lesson.

## Slope Activity

Neil Casey shares what is perhaps one of the most creative ideas I have ever seen for looking at slope and linear patterns.

Cassandra Valenti shares a helpful hint for engaging students with word problems.

## Sequences and Series WODB

Chris Bolognese shares a great WODB problem to kick off your unit on sequences and series.

## DIY Geoboards

Lana Steiner shares a fun challenge: create your own geoboard!

## Math is Everywhere Bulletin Board

I absolutely adore this bulletin board from Nicole Snijders (shared by Nichole Criminger).

## More/Less Reflection

It isn’t too late to still make changes in your classroom. Check out this more/less idea from Carol Anderson!

Carol also shares a great use for transparencies as a manipulative. Definitely click through to watch the video!

Also, how engaging is this lesson on surface area and volume using gingerbread houses?!?

## Teaching Compound Inequalities with Transparencies

Kathryn D Koon shares another great idea that uses transparencies to teach compound inequalities through groupwork.

## I Spy Math Activity

Also from Kathryn D Koon – an engaging game of “I Spy.” I’ve never seen this modified for math class before. How cool!

## Vectors with Popsicle Sticks

Teaching vectors? Check out this lesson from Amy Dusto involving popsicle sticks!

## Candy Circuit Diagrams

Science Teachers – check out how Shawna teaches circuit diagrams using graham crackers and candy!

## Geometry WODB

If you teach geometry, check out this WODB from Kaitlin.

Until next time, keep sharing your awesome ideas!
