Happy Monday! I have just over a month of summer left. To get me in the mood for thinking about next school year, I thought I should put together 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 shared by other (mostly) math teachers on twitter. Hopefully you find at least one idea you can adapt for your own classroom!

David Butler shares a thought-provoking image related to trigonometry.

I like Rebecca Kirvan‘s idea of presenting students with a certificate for becoming a master of factoring.

What better way to start the school year than a “Know Your Teacher Challenge?” I love this idea (and the prizes) from Lizzy Henderson.
