I’m excited for Monday Must Reads to be my first blog post since switching to my new domain name, mathequalslove.net. If you’re reading this post via email or RSS, I encourage you to give the new site a visit! Hopefully, the improved navigation will make it much easier to find previous resources. I’m still tweaking and editing things, so if anyone has any suggestions for improving my site I would love to hear them.
