Weekend Reading – September

I am an avid blog reader.  I find all sorts of new ideas and am refreshed about ideas that I realized in the past.  It always seems great to get a new or different angle on math ed topics.  Here are a few of my favorites articles from around the web.  These articles have a related theme of higher order thinking.  They make for great reading and classroom practice.  Check them out.
