In other exciting news, this is my 1000th post on this blog. I have to say that I never thought my blog would make it this far when I started it back in 2011 as a student teacher. I'm usually the one to start a new project that only lasts a few months before moving on to the next new project. But, it turns out that being a part of the #MTBoS isn't just a fad. It's a lifetime of friendships. Thanks to everyone who reads this blog and encourages me to continue posting. It's because of you that my blog has come this far!

I hope you enjoy reading through the ideas I found most inspiring this week.

Allison Hartwig shares some awesome student work from a geometry project where students had to evaluate advertisements and slogans. Any assignment that gets students thinking critically (and mathematically) about the world around them is a huge win in my book.

I've never been a Star Wars fan, but I still love how Mrs. Richardson combined Star Wars and systems of equations to make an awesome task. She even graciously uploaded the file for all of us to use here.

Amanda Atkinson shares an inequality activity by Sarah Jurhs. I didn't do the best job this year of teaching my students the difference between AND and OR compound inequalities. I think this hand-on activity would be the perfect intro to AND versus OR. Plus, I already have some play money in my cabinet that I've had for years without any idea of what to use it for! You can download this stations activity here.
