A perfect companion of guided notes for the Big Ideas: Blue Book (Intro to Algebra). These are scaffolded notes that have explicit directions. A template for students to use to take class notes based on the exercises in the Big Ideas Math Blue Book (8th Grade curriculum) Chapter 5-Systems of Linear Equations. You can use the .pdf on a Smart Board or projector to guide students, work out problems, and model how to fill in the notes from the text. Also, plenty of bonus materials included within: Step by step worked out solutions, skill builders (focus corrections), typical mistakes to look out for, vocabulary, key ideas, extra practice, extra graph paper, etc. If you'd like the Word file so that you can edit it, send me a private message after purchasing. Also, I have other chapter packets, formative assessments (do-now/exit tickets), and summative assessments.
