Math = Love: Free Downloads

Free Downloads

This blog page started out as an attempt to organize all of the foldables, templates, and graphic organizers that I have created.  When I first started creating them, this method of organization worked well.  After all, there weren't that many of them.  As I became more obsessed with interactive notebooks, the number of files created grew exponentially!  So, for some time, this page has been sadly out of date.

In a recent attempt to organize my INB resources, I created a pinterest board with links to every single notebook page I have ever done with my students.  If you are looking for foldables, notebook pages, etc. I am going to send you there.  It's very visual, and pinterest does an awesome job of organizing all of the pictures.  To find the file you are looking for, visit the pinterest board, click the image you are interested in to enlarge it, and click the enlarged image to be directly linked to the page on my blog where the file can be downloaded.  

To view or download each file, please click on the image.

  2. I have to tell you I just finished copying a class set of partner mats for the Sea of Zeroes to use in my resource classes and I have shrunk it down to fit 2 on a page for my regular math classes. I can't wait to play this in class and then show it on my blog. How fun is it to get excited about playing something in class?

  13. Love your posts. I'm curious... what do you tell your algebra students when they ask "why do we need to know this in real life?" I am having that problem now and unsure of what to respond other than... to pass algebra 2!!! Thanks :)

    1. Lols you tell them to go watch Numb3rs the series and then tell them that is just a fraction of the things you can do with Math in real life. All those Math equations on there is 100% real and valid. My son isso inspired to do Math after watching the series.

  14. What fantastic resources! Thsnk you! I am an international teacher teaching MS math in Brasil, and love all of your ideas. I am beginning interactive notebooks this semester (we are just starting back after summer break next weke) and so excited about it! Any tips for getting th kids started and organized? Do you use the same notebook for bellwork and homework?

    1. We do our bellwork on dry erase boards. And, our homework is usually in the form of a worksheet. So, our notebook is almost entirely notes and example problems.

    1. I actually never ended up using this chart with my students. That's why there isn't a picture. It's based off the 8 properties of equality that are in this picture:

  28. Your blog is amazing! I discovered foldables at the October 2012 NCTM conference in Hartford, and have been gleaning the web ever since - your site is one of the best I've found. I teach 5th-6th grade math, but can still use lots of your models and ideas. Thank you!

  29. Your blog is awesome! I actually think I've found my long lost math twin! I have been creating "Math Reference Books" since I've been teaching and often use Dinah Zike's foldables. I saw her at a National Science Teacher's Association conference 3 years ago and was totally inspired. I love your idea of some pre-made templates...teaching middle school, sometimes page organization takes more time than the value of the foldable! I'm going to have to try that this year!

    Thanks for the ideas and BTW, I love how you also color-code steps or to highlight parentheses! One teacher thought I was nuts because I used so many colors! Glad to see that another adult sees the value that students see in it!

  42. Hello. I teach Algebra 1 to freshmen and they are struggling with organizing information presented to them. I think this will help them to organize information and actually use it to help with assignments. I hope to transition completely to INB in the next year or so just because it's a great resource for the students. Thanks for the inspiration you have given me.

    1. You're welcome! I think your students are going to love the INB. I have students from last year who still stop by to tell me that they still have their notebook from last year. They love them that much!

      There may have been one or two more, but they escape me at the moment.

  45. Hi Sarah,
    I just wanted to tell you how much the Request to Retest has helped my students. I love the fact that they need to do 3 activities to improve their understanding. I allow them to have one of the activities be a tutoring session with me after school. The rest they have to do. It has put the responsibility of learning on the students. Those students who do use this option improve their test grades by 2 letter grades. I have shared this with all the teachers in my building as well. Thanks so much for all your wonderful ideas.

    1. I just saw your blog post about this! I'm so glad that this has been working for you and your students. This is one of those forms that I made and never actually implemented with my students. Next year, I think I will make them come in for an after-school tutoring session before they can retest. I'm totally stealing that idea!

    1. Hi Kristina! At school, I use Microsoft Publisher to make my templates. At home, I'm too cheap to buy Microsoft Office, so I use a free version called Open Office Draw. I know many people who use PowerPoint or Word to make their files. I'd recommend using whatever you are most comfortable with!
