Mathematician’s Toolbox Foldable for INBs

I want to share a mathematician’s toolbox foldable I made for my students to glue in their interactive notebooks this year.

Last year, I had my students leave a blank page at the front of their INBs to glue in a formula sheet.  It never happened.  Oops…  Some of my students were quite stressed out about the page Ms. Hagan made them leave blank and never gave them something to put on it.  Making a formula sheet for my students to reference was one of the big things on my to do list for this summer.

I started to type one by hand, but I quickly gave up on that idea.  I decided to turn to google and compile bits and pieces to make the perfect reference for my students.  I wanted my students to have easy access to look up perfect squares, perfect cubes, multiplication facts, prime numbers, divisibility rules, common fractions and their equivalent decimals, geometric formulas, and conversion factors.

I’ve included links to where I found each image on the internet in the file.  None of these images are my own creation.

This file is meant to be printed double-sided and folded in half before being glued in a notebook.  My students and I refer to this as a “booklet foldable.”

I was trying to download it but couldn't figure it out. I found the link at the bottom of the page.

I love your posts!! I am teaching Algebra 1 using an interactive notebook this year for the first time. I noticed that you have units 1 and 2 posted do you have any other units in Algebra 1?

I have previous years posted. I never finished posting last year's. Sorry! Check out the Algebra 1 tag on the right sidebar for more Alg 1 pages!

Lol, yes my students would completely stress out if we had a blank page! This is great, thanks.

It's crazy how much students can start to care about their notebooks - a good kind of crazy, of course :)

Thank you! This is wonderful! I have recently found your blog and have been going back to read old posts. I will be teaching Algebra 1 & 2 this year for the first time - so reading your posts has been very helpful!
