I created this writing absolute value equations and inequalities foldable for my Algebra 1 students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. We completed this foldable after exploring absolute value relations and creating an absolute value foldable. Students were given graphs of various absolute value equations and inequalities, and they had to determine the …

# Graphing Absolute Value

After exploring patterns in absolute value graphs, we created an absolute value foldable to glue in our interactive notebooks. I had students take a colored sheet of paper, fold it in half hamburger style, cut it in half, and give give half to their neighbor. We used colored markers to write out the general form …

I created this describing absolute value relations foldable to introduce students to the graphs of absolute value equations and inequalities. My Algebra 1 students glued the resulting foldable in their interactive notebooks. My first goal of my absolute value unit was to get students to graph absolute value functions by making an input/output table and …

We ended our absolute value unit in Algebra 1 with this Predicting Absolute Value Transformations Foldable. Our learning goal for this lesson was to be able to predict how the graph of an absolute value relation will be transformed when the equation or inequality is changed. My students were a bit frustrated with me because …

After introducing absolute value with a guess the age activity, my Algebra 1 students completed this graphing absolute value foldable in their interactive notebooks. I had my students create the absolute value graphs by first substituting in values and creating a t-chart of points to graph on the coordinate plane. As a class, we graphed …

These are the notes my Algebra 2 students took in their interactive notebooks over absolute value functions. I found this absolute value transformations graphic organizer online. The site where I downloaded it no longer exists, so I am uploading the file at the bottom of this post. In one class, one of my students wanted …
