At the same time, I'm trying to further develop my teaching strategies beyond foldables and interactive notebooks. Everyone tells me that I am doing a good job, but I know that I could be doing so many things better. I have so much room to grow. I've been doing a lot of research lately on Kagan Cooperative Learning strategies. I just ordered a new book of teaching strategies from Amazon that I can't wait to delve into. I've already tried several of the strategies, and they were amazing. So much to blog about!

Here's my latest interactive notebook entries for Algebra 1.

Outside of Cross Multiplication Foldable |

Inside of Cross Multiplication Foldable |

Solving Proportions Practice; Unit Rate Example using Grocery Ads |

Fraction / Decimal / Percent Triangle Stolen from Pinterest |

Percents and Proportions Foldable (Outside) I'm teaching this the same way my Algebra 1 teacher taught me: "Is over of equals percent over one hundred." |

Percents and Proportions Foldable (Inside) Part over whole equals percent over one hundred. |

Percent of Change Notes Nothing spectacular here... |

Ordered Pair Notes |

Inside of Coordinate Plane Foldable |

Scatter Plot Foldable Outside 3 Types of Correlation |

Inside of Scatter Plots Foldable 3 Types of Correlation |

Domain and Range Notes |

Independent and Dependent Variable Notes |

Algebra 2 Factoring Foldable |

Love the unit rates idea! I can't wait to use it!

ReplyDeleteThere are so many great ideas here for interactive notebooks. I especially liked how you had the students cut out picture from a grocery flyer and find the unit rate of that item. And the round stickers for correlation looks like a fun, engaging, hands on activity. Thanks for sharing all your photos!

ReplyDeleteWhat does the inside of your factoring foldable look like? I love it and definitely want to do that with my algebra students too.

ReplyDeleteMe too! I want to see the inside of the factoring foldable!

ReplyDeleteI like your F/D/P triangle! I saw this triangle at an inservice last week as well but it was too late for this year's lesson. :( I can't wait to try it next year for this lesson.

ReplyDeleteThese are great ideas! Thank you for sharing. It is hard to find good math stuff for older kids. I also would like to see the inside of the factoring foldable!

ReplyDeleteDo you have any pictures of the inside of the Factoring Foldable???

ReplyDeleteI didn't take any pictures of the inside because it was terrible. We did an example problem of each type, but it was incredibly disorganized. This is on my list of foldables to revise for next year. I want to have all of the steps written out for my students who need to refresh their memories.

DeleteI know this is a year old, but any chance you can show or tell me what's on the inside of your ratio and proportion definitions? Looks like you have your Frayer model vocab on there, but I'd love to see what you put in each section.

ReplyDeleteRatio

DeleteDefinition: A comparison of two numbers by division

Facts/Characteristics: ratio of a to b ; a:b ; a/b

Proportion

Definition: An equation that states two ratios are equal

Facts/Characteristics: a is to b as c is to d; a/b = c/d

I let each class come up with their own examples and non-examples.

Hope this helps!

I LOVE your interactive notebook! I really wanted to try one this year with my Geometry students and struggled to know where to begin.

ReplyDeleteThanks! Keep an eye on my blog because I have plans to write an entire series on how to start an interactive notebook in the next couple of weeks. If you have any specific questions you want to see answered, just let me know.

DeleteAnd, thanks for reading my blog!

Have you started your INB series yet? We hit a brick wall midway this year (doing it the "old" way) I just started INB last week. First test tomorrow - hopefully it has helped! I would love any and all help :)

DeleteSadly, I haven't. This semester has been way busier than I anticipated. I'm presenting over it in June at my state's math teacher conference, so it should be up no later than the end of May.

DeleteI love love love your foldables! It's my first year teaching math (algebra 2), and I'm trying to spice things up a bit. I always loved math, but I know that I'm teaching students who don't necessarily share my love. Good thing: They know they need to learn this stuff for SATs. Better thing: I'm going to try to get them to actually enjoy it! Thanks and keep on blogging!

ReplyDeleteBy chance can you give me the actual steps on how you make the 4 corner factoring foldable. I've been trying unsuccessfully and can't figure it out

ReplyDeleteStart with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper into fourths. Unfold the paper. Fold each corner into the center. It should make the shape you are looking for. :)
