This 3 circle venn diagram template is the perfect tool to help you or your students unlock the power of visual organization. Download this free PDF template to get started organizing key concepts.

I typed up this simple observations vs. inferences chart for my chemistry students to glue in their interactive notebooks. We followed this chart up by practicing telling the differences between observations and inferences with a dinosaur activity. Free Download of Observations vs Inferences Chart

I created this physical changes vs chemical changes venn diagram for my chemistry students to glue in their chemistry interactive notebooks. I need to share you one warning about this venn diagram that caused my chemistry students a lot of issues. See how the image above shows chemical change on the left and physical change …

I created this prime factorization graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to summarize two different methods for finding prime factorization: the factor tree method and the birthday cake method. I teach my Algebra 1 students to simplify radicals through prime factorization because it works no matter what the index of the radical is. This …

I created this adding and subtracting polynomials graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Free Download of Adding and Subtracting Polynomials Graphic Organizer

I created this solving systems by elimination graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to use and glue in their interactive notebooks. These are very similar to the graphic organizer I made for solving systems by substitution. We did substitution first and elimination afterwards. My students, like usual, much preferred the elimination method. When I …

I created this solving systems by substitution graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to use in their interactive notebooks. This graphic organizer walks students through the steps of solving a system of equations by substitution. Here’s a closer look at the word problems we tackled for substitution. We ended up solving four different word …

I created this four types of slope graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Though the concept of slope is a middle school standard in Oklahoma, I find that I have to go ALL the way back to the basics with my Algebra 1 students. We began by refreshing …

I created this set of writing linear equations graphic organizers to give my Algebra 1 students practice writing linear equations given a graph, intercepts, a set of points, or a point and a slope. Students are given several pieces of information, and they have to figure out every single other piece of information. I love …

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 …

I added a new rate of change graphic organizer this year in our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks. This graphic organizer resulted from making the decision to NOT introduce the term “slope” during our relations and functions unit. Instead, I decided to wait until our linear graphs and inequalities unit to begin referring to rate of …

I took my trusty DIXI ROYD mnemonic and turned it into a domain and range graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Free Download of Domain and Range Graphic Organizer DIXI ROYD

I created these solving absolute value equations graphic organizers for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. First, we started out by gluing in a set of steps for solving absolute value equations. These steps were the perfect reference guide for students as they worked through the leveled practice cards I created …

We started out solving absolute value inequalities by gluing a set of steps for solving absolute value inequalities in our interactive notebooks. Next, we moved straight on to a whole bunch of practice using this solving absolute value inequalities graphic organizer I created to help my Algebra 1 students organize their work. We ended up …

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 …

I created these compound inequalities graphic organizers to give my Algebra 1 students practice solving compound inequalities. We completed these graphic organizers after our compound inequalities foldable. We only did four practice problems in our notebooks for compound inequalities. I think we should have done more. Here are close-ups of each: Free Download of Compound …

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.

After reviewing the order of operations, we completed this negatives and exponents graphic organizer in our Algebra 1 interactive notebook. I think in the future, I would make this activity into some sort of card sort instead. I also wish I would have had a place where students formally recorded the difference between a negative …

I created this order of operations graphic organizer for our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks. My students may have been looking at order of operations problems for years, but these problems most likely didn’t contain grouping symbols such as absolute value bars, radicals, or fraction lines. My students need practice with this broader definition of grouping …

I created this types of sequences graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Even though Oklahoma’s standards only mention arithmetic and geometry sequences, I decided to include a category called “Neither” as well. This gave me the opportunity to expose my students to the Fibonacci sequence! In retrospect, I …

I created these measures of central tendency graphic organizers for my Algebra 1 students to review how to find mean, median, mode, and range at the beginning of our data analysis unit. If you’ve been paying attention, you might have caught a sneak peek of these notes over finding mean, median, mode, and range in …

I always have my Algebra 1 students look for patterns before we begin factoring polynomials. Free Download of Looking for Patterns in Factoring Quadratics

Combining Like Terms Activity (Version 3.0) I modified my combining like terms strip activity that I have used for the past two years. This year, I added a box for students to write their simplified answer in. I think it really helped them organize their work better! Close-ups of each problem: Looking for a fun …
