Happy Monday! Once again, I'm sharing some of the awesomeness I've ran across on twitter and in my RSS feed over the last few weeks. I'm declaring these "must reads."


 Julie Morgan is sharing more angle-awesomeness over at her blog, Fraction Fanatic, this week.

When I used to teach Algebra 2 (back when conics were still in the Oklahoma standards), I used to always give my students a conics flow chart. It was fill-in-the blank, and I loved it. Now, I'm wishing I had taken the lead of Sara Goldrick and had students unscramble and assemble a conics flow chart themselves!

I've always taught polynomial terminology as something to be memorized. I'm inspired by Paul Jorgens to approach the terminology from a notice/wonder standpoint this year instead.

I found this graph shared by Cambridge Mathematics of which times tables students struggle with the most to be very interesting.

I could definitely do a better job of incorporating more data collection into my classroom. I especially like this idea of parachute men for square root functions from Jazmine Castanon.

Have any remote controlled cars laying around your house? Then, you're set to try out this systems of equations lesson from Heather Lintz.

Anna Fergusson shares the brilliant idea of creating data cards to make scatterplots. Each data point is printed and cut out with a circle punch. There are multiple pieces of data about each datapoint on the circle, so you can easily change the scatterplot out to look at a different variable. Anna shares a set of data cards for you to print that focuses on Quick Draw data for cats.

Until next week, keep up the awesome sharing!
