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.
Berkeley Everett shares a great quote about mathematics.
Check out this brilliant hands-on angle lesson from Sevdije Perezic.
Anna Scholl demonstrates how to use transparencies as a manipulative in geometry class.
These fraction templates from Julie Morgan look very helpful!
Rob Morrill shares a fun coding project.
Jed shares some excellent student work from his calculus class made out of post-it notes.
Check out this thought-provoking trig question from Matt Enlow.
Check out this puzzle bulletin board shared by eliotmath. I love that the math challenge was created by a 3rd grader for his fellow students to solve!
Until next week, keep sharing your awesome math teaching ideas!
