Tomorrow is the first day of actual math class, so I’m starting off with my Habits of Mind survey that I created last year at the beginning of the year. I give some statements to the students and they can determine which habit of mind they represent.

With 5 students per group and 8 habits, this shouldn’t be too challenging, but we’ll see how it goes….
