Linear equations make up a large portion of the Algebra 1 curriculum and are often highly represented on end-of-year tests. Over the course of several years, I have developed a number of projects and review materials to help students master a solid understanding of linear equations, along with their related graphs, tables of x-y values, and real-world scenarios. I created this mini-book for my students to provide them with a way to take organized, clear, simple notes on this topic.
This set of materials is designed to help students create their own review booklet on linear equations, tables, and graphs (or it can be used as an introduction to these concepts.) I have included a complete mini-book (which might be useful to hand to students who were absent on the day of this activity), a fill-in-the-blank version for students to fill out in class, instructions on how to make the mini-book, and individual large slides to display for each page as you help students create their booklet. I have also included some questions at the end that could be used as classwork, homework, or a quiz, or could be broken up into separate exit ticket questions. You could do this activity in one day, or introduce each concept (equations, tables, graphs, summary) on separate days as you teach this unit.
