I have incorporated several different strategies into my lessons over the years which have aided me in becoming a Georgia Certified Master teacher. Integrating foldables into my lessons is one of those strategies. This download includes the foldables needed to complete the foldables notebook for the Common Core Curriculum for 8th Grade Math Unit 2. Each year I have my students complete the foldables and glue them onto pages in a 3-pronged folder. The thumbnails to the right show some student examples of the foldables. By the end of the year students will have a notebook full of foldables with the notes needed to solve each concept they have learned throughout the year. Students have so much fun creating them that they don't even realize that what they are actually doing is taking notes! The foldables may be used for classwork, homework, review activities, study guides, to complete error analysis on tests, etc. Both my regular ed students and students with disabilities have shown great progress during the last 5 years that I have integrated them into my instruction.
Included in this download are foldables for estimating radicals, estimating radicals version 2, solving expressions with pi, changing fractions to repeating decimals, ordering rational and irrational numbers, scientific notation on a calculator, multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting with scientific notation, how many solutions (equations), how many times larger (scientific notation), properties of exponents, rational and irrational numbers, solving equations, square and cube roots and scientific notation (changing to standard form). Each foldable includes a printable, title page for the foldable, a sheet indicating where to fold and where to cut, and a step-by-step guide to creating the foldable. Also included is an error analysis handout, a sample assessment and the instructions needed in order to use the foldables successfully with the error analysis in your classroom.
