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 …
