I created this 5 W’s and H Foldable for my Stats class to glue in their statistics interactive notebooks (INBs). The 5 W’s are a key part of how Bock, Velleman, and De Veaux introduce statistics in Stats Modeling the World. I was inspired to create this 5 W’s and H foldable after seeing one …

I created this simplifying radicals foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Free Download of Simplifying Radicals Foldable

This prime factorization foldable is one of my Algebra 1 students’ most-used resources throughout our radicals unit. I was inspired to create this foldable after one of my eighth graders commented that it would be cool to have something in our notes that gave us every single prime factorization. I took this idea and ran …

This year I created a new writing polynomials in standard form graphic organizer and foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Then, we practiced taking polynomial expressions and writing them in standard form. I was a bit overambitious about how many examples we were going to get through. We ended …

I created this factoring quadratics foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. I had to make a lot of compromises with this topic that made me sad. But, I just didn’t have the time I usually have for this topic. This was mainly due to losing a large amount of …

I created this multiplying polynomials foldable for my Algebra 1 students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. I’m experimenting this year with the “grid method” for multiplying polynomials. It’s exactly the same as the box method, but it just seemed to tie better to what we had been doing with multiplying polynomials with …

I created this solving systems by graphing foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. This was our first topic in our systems of equations unit. In the future, I think I would want to modify these notes to have a specific box for students to write the ordered pair of …

I created this systems of inequalities foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. This foldable gave us some quality coloring time! I found that having my students use two different colors (one for each inequality) helped them find the overlapping area. Free Download of Systems of Inequalities Foldable

We completed this calculating slope and intercepts foldable in our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks. We completed this foldable after our Finding Slope and Finding Intercepts Foldables. It’s a simple booklet foldable of practice problems. Free Download of Calculating Slope and Intercepts Foldable

This Finding Intercepts Foldable reviews finding x- and y-intercepts from a graph, from an equation, and from a table. I created it for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. I also created a similar foldable for finding slope. Like with the Finding Slope foldable, I had students cut off the top …

This Finding Slope Foldable reviews finding slope from a graph, from an equation, and from a table. I created it for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. I also created a similar foldable for finding intercepts. I modified a standard four door foldable to create this finding slope foldable. I had …

My husband made this transformations of linear functions foldable for me last year when I was sick. I introduced my students to the following vocabulary words: reflected, dilated, and translated. For practice, we just wrote some problems on the next blank page in our notebooks. Free Download of Transformations of Linear Functions Foldable

I created this foldable to give my Algebra 1 students practice classifying pairs of lines as parallel, perpendicular, or neither. Free Download of Classifying Lines as Parallel, Perpendicular, or Neither Foldable

Our last skill in our linear graphing unit was to write linear inequalities. I created this foldable to give students practice writing inequalities given a graph. Students were given a graph, and they had to write the matching inequality. Free Download of Writing Inequalities Given a Graph Foldable

I created this forms of linear equations foldable to help my Algebra 1 students learn the name and characteristics of each of the three forms of linear equations. I modified a simple four-door foldable to have students cut off the first flap in order to reveal the title of our foldable: Forms of Linear Equations. …

I created this types of lines foldable to help kick off our discussion of parallel and perpendicular lines in Algebra 1. My students glued the resulting foldable in their interactive notebooks. This foldable features not only a description of the appearance of parallel and perpendicular lines but a summary of what we know about the …

Yesterday, we started exploring the idea of graphing linear inequalities. We’ve been graphing linear equations for a month now, so it was time to branch out a bit. I created a graphing two variable inequalities dry erase template for my 11 x 17 dry erase pockets to help students understand what it means for a point …

This starburst scatterplot activity ended up being one of my favorite activities of the year! This year, I switched up the order a bit in Algebra 1 and moved creating scatter plots and lines of best fit from our Data Analysis Unit (end of the year) to our Linear Graphs and Inequalities Unit (half way …

I updated my domain and range restrictions foldable from last year to update some of the examples. Free Download of Domain and Range Restrictions Foldable

I borrowed these domain and range foldables from Math by the Mountain. You can learn more about her relations and functions unit in this blog post. Domain and Range of Discrete Relations Foldable Domain and Range of Continuous Relations

I created this independent vs dependent variables foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Since I started teaching, I have struggled to teach independent and dependent variables in a way I am proud of. Each year, it seems like I try something new. And, no matter what, the same 60% …

I created this graphing functions using input/output tables foldable for my Algebra 1 students to put in their interactive notebooks. After graphing the “Win Some Cash!” functions, we did some more graphing functions practice. After graphing each function, students had to classify the function as linear, absolute value, quadratic, or exponential. We needed lots of …

Well, it turns out that I still have posts in my drafts folder from last year. I guess I should do something about that. The Skill: Comparing Data Sets The Topic: Ages of Academy Award Winners The Introduction: Ask students what they expect to happen. This was a difficult task for my students. It turns …

I used this estimating 30 seconds data collection activity with my Algebra 1 students, and it turned out to be a ton of fun. How well can you estimate 30 seconds? This is the question I posed to my Algebra 1 students a couple of weeks ago as part of our unit on data analysis. …
