1) Building off the readings from last week by Burns and Tao: What are your own mathematical strengths and weaknesses? What are some mathematical strengths that you admire in others—colleagues, students, friends?
2) Building off the first reading from this week, by me: Using the four categories I lay out as a guide, in what ways is math a part of your life? How do you represent to your students their possible connections to mathematics—both through what you tell them about math in general, and through relating your personal experiences in particular?
Take these two prompts. Using one or both, write up a reflection this week and share the result with your classmates (as you see fit).
