Monday Must Reads: Volume 87

The remaining Mondays of summer are dwindling! Before I know it, I will be back in my classroom with students. I’ve decided it’s time to get serious about thinking about school things once again. But before I get out the laminator, I decided I should put together a new volume of Monday Must Reads. This is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas shared by (mostly) math teachers on twitter.
