## Finding Slope Foldable

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 …

## Four Types of Slope Graphic Organizer

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 …

## Transformations of Linear Functions Foldable

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

## Writing Inequalities Given a Graph 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

## Forms of Linear Equations 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. …

## Types of Lines Foldable

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 …

## Writing Linear Equations Graphic Organizer

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 …

## Graphing Linear Inequalities Foldable

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 …

## Starburst Scatterplot Activity

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 …

## Rate of Change Interpreting Graphs Practice

After looking at graphs with a constant rate of change, we shifted to graphs that have various rates of change.  I’m a bit disappointed that both graphs I chose were distance-time graphs. This is definitely an area of improvement for next year! Free Download of Rate of Change Interpreting Graphs Practice

## Rate of Change Graphic Organizer and Practice Problems

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 …

## Domain and Range Foldables

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
