My Algebra 1 students created this page in their interactive notebooks to help them remember how to do rise over run. We glued in a positive and a negative sign. One each symbol, we wrote the directions to rise and run in order to make each type of slope.

Hi,

I love love love your blog! It has helped me get through the first 9 weeks of my first year of teaching. I think the slope intercept foldable is great, and I would love to use it in my classroom. The link to download the template does not show up for me, though. Could you possibly send it to me?
