This year, I decided I wanted to have my students write a mathematical autobiography. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I did some serious google searching. It took a while to find, but I finally happened upon some questions that I liked. This "Mathography" assignment asked students to write a three paragraph essay. I wanted to use the same questions but make it less intimidating of an assignment for the first week of school.
Here's my foldable version. Yes, I am truly obsessed. I guess that's why people kept referring to me as the "foldable queen" at #TMC14... Plus, isn't this cuter than having your students right an essay? :)
Students who wrote things on the inside of their autobiography that they didn't want others to see were given the option of stapling their autobiography shut in their notebook after I checked it.

The first section is just about "ME" in general.
