This graphic organizer is broken into four sections: Consecutive Integers, Consecutive Even Integers, Consecutive Odd Integers, and Area/Perimeter. I usually use this the day after I have introduced consecutive integers. I have already explained and we have discovered where the patterns come from, but this graphic organizer gives them a reference sheet to help them when they forget. When I teach consecutive integers, I actually have them write the steps that I did from this graphic organizer. I have found that by following these steps, they have a better chance of remembering things instead of just writing the equation. I also included an area and perimeter section because students tend to make these problems harder than they truly are. They know how to find the area and perimeter of figures, but when you ask them to go backwards, they look at you like you are crazy! So, by having them always writing the equation, then plugging things in, it makes them a little less nervous about the problem and they are able to do them.
**when you print it, it should be on 1 page. It always prints on 1 page for me. I just can't get the thumbnails to make it look like 1 page (I think because of the margins).**
