I want to share a systems of equations foldable I created for my Algebra 2 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. First, we did a pretty basic interactive notebook page on how to solve systems of equations by graphing. We began by defining two important terms: system of equations and solution. I love having …

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 …

Today, in Algebra 1, we had a snowball fight. My students had never done anything like this. Well, for that matter, I hadn’t either. This idea originated from Kate’s blog as a first day of school getting to know you activity. Well, we’ve been in school almost a month, and I teach at a very …

Today I’m sharing a factoring flow chart that has been really helpful to my students. Factoring finally clicked for my college algebra students. It was definitely a Hallelujah! moment. The lowest grade on the factoring test was a 95. I’m definitely not your typical math teacher. When students ask for help during a test, I …

I created this solving one step equations foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. We also completed a Frayer Model about what it means to solve an equation. We glued in the Frayer Model on our left hand side. Downloads

I created this distributive property foldable to show my Algebra 1 students the four different ways that a distributive property problem can be written. To create this foldable, I took a letter-sized sheet of colored paper and cut it in half lengthwise on my paper chopper. Then, I had each student fold the strip of …

I created this integer operations foldable for my Algebra 1 students to fill out as we reviewed the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers. I used my favorite four door foldable template to create this integer operations foldable. I have uploaded the file at the bottom of this post. Here’s the inside of our …

On the fourth day of school, I assigned my college algebra students the Real Number Line Project. My inspiration came from Matt Coaty’s Real Number Line Project. I even stole the name of the project. The previous day, I had introduced the real number system. We spent an entire class period classifying numbers as natural …

Less than a year ago, I made my first every foldable – a slope foldable. It was one of those random ideas you get in the shower. Or maybe I’m the only person who thinks about how to teach various math concepts in the shower… I made it. I loved it. I blogged about it. …
