Monday Must Reads: Volume 13

This week marks my school's last full week of school before fall break. I'm looking forward to the chance to take a bit of a break from the daily grind of school and reflect on what is working well and what isn't working at all.

Today, as I do almost every Monday, I'm sharing great ideas I have seen on Twitter and various math-y and science-y blogs over the past week or so. Enjoy reading about some great ideas! 



@druinok shares a great list of must-read books for math teachers on her blog this week. Want proof that the list is a good one? I've purchased three of these books (out of five) in the past based on her recommendation!
