Monday Must Reads: Volume 84

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!
