For our quiz on solving systems of equations algebraically, I let my students choose between solving by substitution and solving by elimination. I made some graphic organizers (substitution and elimination) for my students to follow that walked them step-by-step through the process of each method solution method.

After that post, I realized that I never blogged about how I modified these graphic organizers to make templates for them to use on their quiz.

Substitution:

My students really appreciated having this template that they could fill out and staple to their quiz. I only had a handful of students choose to just show their work on their quiz without the template.

These would be perfect to print double-sided and slip into a set of dry erase pockets for students to use when solving systems of equations problems in class!

If you don’t have a classroom set of dry erase pockets, you could also use heavy duty sheet protectors. But, I highly recommend investing in a classroom set of the pockets since they are so much more durable.

**MATH = LOVE RECOMMENDS…**

I cannot imagine teaching math without my dry erase pockets! They instantly make any activity more engaging and save me countless hours at the copy machine since I can use the same class sets of copies year after year.

Here are my current go-to recommendations:

Here’s an example of the two sets of dry erase pockets I have in my classroom:

The neon set of dry erase pockets at the top holds 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The lower set is a set of 11 x 17 dry erase pockets that hold 11 x 17 cardstock. I bought both sets off of Amazon. They are super-cheap if you buy the ones sold as “shop ticket holders.”
