I want to share a systems of equations foldable I created for my Algebra 2 students to glue in their interactive notebooks.

First, we did a pretty basic interactive notebook page on how to solve systems of equations by graphing.

We began by defining two important terms: system of equations and solution.

I love having students glue these graph paper index cards in their interactive notebooks when I decide to have students graph something on a whim.

Then, we made a 3 door foldable over the 3 types of systems.

This basic 3 door foldable template (download shared at the bottom of this post) is one of my go-tos.

Each flap on the foldable represents a different type of systems: intersecting lines, coinciding lines, and parallel lines.

The inside of the foldable shares the number of solutions that each system has and its proper name (independent, dependent, or inconsistent).

I LOVE your ideas! I used the "Steps for Graphing Inequalities" today with my Algebra 1 students. But I noticed you graphed your y-intercept as a positive 9/2 instead of -9/2 therefore we should shade above the line. Keep up the awesome creativity!!!

Thank you so much for this! I was going to do a foldable for types of systems tomorrow and now I've got the perfect one to use :)
