    I like all of the resources and try to incorporate them throughout the year. Well, Math Before Bed is new. I’ll look more into it. I think I may be able to use it to build numeracy. They are all great for discussion, and each highlights a math habit I want my students to develop. For example, in Would You Rather, students sometimes have to balance the math answer with personal choice (my height in quarters in more than $225, but they’re heavier). Headbands encourages students to consider all types of numbers, which is essential, but difficult for 7th graders. It allows them to see that an answer of “no” to “Is it even?” doesn’t necessarily tell them what they think it does. They have to consider their own assumptions about numbers.
