It’s Monday once again which means it is time for a new volume of Monday Must Reads. If you’re new around here, Monday Must Reads is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas of (mostly) math teachers on twitter. My goal is that you will find at least one idea that inspires you in this week’s collection of inspiring tweets.
It’s an especially happy Monday for me because I was able to receive my first dose of the covid vaccine today. Oklahoma just opened vaccinations to teachers today, and I’m super thankful that my district made vaccine appointments for all teachers/employees who wanted to receive their first dose. I’ve been teaching students face-to-face since August, O I am extremely thankful to have this opportunity to get vaccinated.

I really enjoyed making my own four leaf clover using Steve Phelps’ Desmos Activity Builder Challenge. Here’s the link you need to use it with your own students.
Mark Kaercher shares a piecewise function themed WODB.
Mark also shares a great Demos activity that combines graphing piecewise functions with emojis. Fun!
Erick Lee shares some magic sum puzzles that he has created in Desmos. These look fun!
Alison Hogben recommends using yarn for graphing stories.
Sarah Furman‘s origami hearts look like a fun way to incorporate a bit of Valentine’s Day into math class! I’m adding this to my list of things to try next year.
Anna Marie Vagnozzi shares a fun zoom poll.
How cool is it that Deb Bulin wore her Valentine’s Day bonus question?!?
Mr Canning shares some open middle style problems for composition of functions.
Elizabeth Moore shares a WODB for Venn Diagrams and Set Notation.
Liz Mastalio shares a fun code word idea to use when filming videos for students to watch.
Until next week, keep sharing your awesome ideas! Want even more ideas? I suggest checking out previous volumes of Monday Must Reads!
