Several years ago, I created this deriving the unit circle foldable for my trigonometry students to work through and glue in their interactive notebooks. I tweeted about the foldable, but the file never made it to my blog. Today, I am remedying that! We started with a review of our special right triangles. First, we …

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 …

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 …

Before I teach my algebra students to rationalize the denominator, I try to answer the looming question: why do we rationalize the denominator? I realize that rationalizing the denominator has gone out of fashion as a result of the Common Core State Standards, but the topic is still required by the Oklahoma math standards. I …

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

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 …
