I updated this foldable in 2017 when I used it with my Algebra 1 students.

I took some step-by-step pictures while writing out these notes to help explain the process.

Sorry it's a bit overwhelming! If you go to my pinterest page, I do try to put a picture of each page on there.

I'll be teaching an Algebra I support class next year - Question: How do you deal with their notebooks getting super thick? Do you have them get a new one at the end of each quarter - or does it not get as thick as I'm anticipating? Thank you for sharing your awesome stuff so freely!!!! You're great.

I've only ever used a hundred pages tops. I did give my students giant rubber bands to hold their notebooks closed.
