Monday Must Reads: Volume 20

Happy Monday! Things have been pretty quiet here on the blog since last Monday's Must Reads post because I decided to take full advantage of the opportunity to rest during our 9 days off for Thanksgiving. Today was our first day back, and I'm excited about what's ahead for all of my classes as we sprint towards Christmas Break.

I hope you enjoy this week's "Must Reads."


I'm a huge fan of Quarter the Cross, so I'm super excited about this new puzzle: how many ways can you shade a third of the large triangle? Thanks to Michael Jacobs for sharing!

John Rowe offers up a new Open Middle Problem that will be a perfect addition to your unit on linear equations. Keep procrastinating, John. We all appreciate the fruit of your procrastination!

I love Sarah DiMaria's approach to displaying the norms created by each class. The idea of having each student sign the norms is brilliant.

I had my first experience with Prime Climb (affiliate link) at a meeting of the Tulsa Math Teachers' Circle. David Butler shares a simple but brilliant tweak to make playing a life sized game of Prime Climb even easier: colored sashes to represent teams.

Charlotte Anne combines food with proof. Now, I want to do my own research. Are Doritos consistently sized?

Toni Madison shares an inspiring Christmas-themed project that could be used in pretty much any math class: vocab ornaments. Be sure to check out Toni's blog post with more details about this project and other awesome Christmas ideas for the math classroom!

Thanksgiving may be over, but I can't help but share this awesome angle finding activity from Ms. Grove.

I've used Skyscraper puzzles in the past with linking cubes (affiliate link), but Danny Whittaker has opened my eyes to a different approach: dice!

Janice Mejia shows off a student example of a social media project. Love how this type of activity can bring out student creativity!
