__Take math teachers for example:__

**"Should an 'A' start at 92% or 93%?" #AprilMaths**Get twelve in a room (or even two for that matter) and try to decide if an A should start at 92% or 93%. A decision will not be made and no one will leave on good terms.

**"Any ways to use the median length of a triangle in a Call of Duty word problem?" #AprilMaths**Ask if the median of a triangle is an important concept for a student to know if future math classes (or even in the current one)--make sure to follow up with "Why?" too.

**"How do you use the graphing calculator in your job at the nuclear reactor?" #AprilMaths**Ask a math teacher to tell you what current technology exists that can help students relate to their world but tell them they can't use the word "calculator" in their response.

**"Tell me your thoughts on this so I can give you three reasons why you're wrong." #AprilMaths**Each person believes their opinion is built on a solid truth that cannot be shaken. Because our worksheets have one answer so must any question or possibility asked of us to consider.

In an effort to keep the conversation going I'm going to tweet out these thoughts. Maybe it'll catch on or maybe it'll just be a word in one of my blog posts. #AprilMaths
