Description

Combining Like Terms: 2-page "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

**This resource is also available in a DISCOUNTED bundle: Expressions & Equations Bundle

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:
- Vocabulary (term, coefficient, variable, constant
- How to identify like terms
- Combining like terms
- Writing in standard form
- Simplifying with multiple steps (and distributing first)

Check out the preview for more detail about this item and the research behind it.


Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!
