Product Description
One of my favorite types of "worksheets" is the foldable, because students glue it directly into their math journals, instead of asking "Do we need to keep this?" at the end of the lesson. Fellow teachers, you know what I'm talking about.

I use this practice foldable during my lesson on cube roots. When I teach estimating cube roots it's the same way I teach with square roots: guess (logical estimate) and check. This foldable is a great practice resource for that!

The first page covers the logical process of determining the approximate value of a cube root and allows students to use calculators to cube their approximations and get closer and closer to the correct answer. Alternatively, this page can be done without the use of calculators for more advanced students. Pages 2 and 3 are no-calculator zones, where students will estimate each cube root to the nearest tenth, checking their approximations by hand and adjusting estimates as necessary. Page 3 includes a mix of square roots and cube roots to estimate, so students can practice telling the difference between them

Happy journaling!
