Monday Must Reads: Volume 44

It's Monday yet again! That means it's time to round-up as much of the awesomeness of twitter as possible. I hope you enjoy this peek at what I found inspiring this week. As more and more schools finish for the summer, these posts will likely become more and more infrequent until school starts back up in the fall.

I've often had students draw histograms when working with experimental/theoretical probability. But, Joe Benforte has inspired me to have students represent the results using linking cubes in the future as they collect their results. This would make it super easy to combine the results of different groups!
