Linkfest for Sunday, March 9

I have to clear out all my open tabs!

I really like Maria Droujkova's response to someone who asked about the Common Core. She (oh so diplomatically) mentioned what she likes. The mathematical practices:
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Although I'm not sure their list is any better than Avery Pickford's Mathematical Habits of Mind. In other words, it's a good list, but not the only good one.
