I made these Frayer Models to try to help connect passages for easier transfer of knowledge between the contextual math problems (math in real life) and it's symbolic form (the equations, and x's and y's that everyone thinks upper level math is supposed to be). If you feel like you don't know enough applications in context or an application/context that is "good enough", then make it an assignment. It also really helps give students structure and organizes their thoughts on each concept all on one page. Can be used as a great study guide assignment too, or daily warm ups are filling out the unit's Frayer Models.
This set is aligned to all 6-8 standards for "Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities" It includes a Frayer Model (with emphasis on transfer of knowledge from symbolic form to in context) for 46 concepts, divided into subcategories: Expressions & Equations, Linear Equations, Systems of Equations, Exponents, and Inequalities.
Blank Frayer Models are also included.
