Monday Must Reads: Volume 97

It’s been a rainy Monday full of prepping to attend an ACT training tomorrow and analyzing our spring ACT benchmark data as a math department. I thought I should take a bit of time today to put together a new volume of Monday Must Reads.

Can you believe I’m getting close to reaching 100 volumes of Monday Must Reads? Monday Must Reads is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas shared by (mostly) math teachers on twitter. I enjoy sharing and amplifying these ideas so they can impact as many classrooms as possible.

I’m super excited that Nicole Whitty has started a new math teaching blog with some amazing free resources! I miss the days when it seemed like everyone was sharing free resources on their math blogs, so it’s super exciting to see a new blog pop up.

I really like these quadratic equation puzzles.

And how awesome does this systems of linear equations debate activity sound?!?

Simon Gregg shares an awesome quilt made by a kindergarten class from Cuisenaire rods. Beautiful! Each section of the quilt represents a hundred.
