I created this integer operations foldable for my Algebra 1 students to fill out as we reviewed the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers.
I used my favorite four door foldable template to create this integer operations foldable. I have uploaded the file at the bottom of this post.
Here’s the inside of our foldable:
On the left hand page of our interactive notebook, my students created an integer operations wheel.
Students had to pick 8 problems from the previous day’s assignment. They had to write out each step of the problem and explain why the answer would be positive or negative.
The circle is actually a Describing Wheel. The site I downloaded it from no longer exists.
I used the same foldable in 2013. Here’s how it looked that year.
After using two-colored counters to derive the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers, I had my students create a four-door foldable to summarize the results of their findings.
Inside, we wrote the rules for each type of problem and included several examples of each for students to refer to.
