I created these graphic organizers to give my Algebra 1 students some structured practice solving equations/inequalities with variables on both sides of the equal sign. We started out by gluing in a set of steps to our interactive notebooks. I created six practice problems for my students to work through together. This year I am …

We did six practice problems in our notebook over solving equations/inequalities with variables on one side. Students stapled these problems together and glued them on a single page. Some students even chose to staple their paper with the steps on top of the practice problems to condense things even further. I kinda like this approach! …

This inequalities investigation was inspired by an activity from Discovering Algebra called “Toe the Line.”  The goal of this activity is to remind students that we need to flip the inequality symbol whenever we multiply or divide both sides of the inequality by a negative number.

I created this compound inequalities foldable to introduce the topic to my Algebra 1 students. We glued the resulting foldable in our interactive notebooks. I have NEVER been happy with how I’ve taught compound inequalities in the past.  I’ve never really given my students as reason for why we need to even deal with compound …
