This packet was designed to help implement interactive notebook activities in the Algebra 1 classroom. The following topics are presented in the scaffolded notes which can be added to math journals:
Expressions vs. Equations
The Equal Sign/Writing Equations
The X-Value that Makes the Equation with Addition True (Matching)
The X-Value that Makes the Equation with Multiplication True (Matching)
Practice with Combining Like Terms to Solve Equations
The Addition Principle for Equations (Adding a Positive Number to Both Sides)
The Addition Principle for Equations (Adding a Negative Number to Both Sides)
The Addition Principle with an Extra Step
Using the Addition Principle to Get the X-Terms on One Side of the Equation
Combine Like Terms on Both Sides of the Equal Sign Before Using the Addition Principle
Using the Addition Principle Twice to Get the X-Terms on One Side of the Equation
Simplify Before Using the Addition Principle
Distribute and Simplify Before Using Addition Principle
Review of the Different Types of Problems Involving the Addition Principle
The Division Principle for Equations
The Multiplication Principle for Equations
Using the Division Principle
Using the Multiplication Principle
Using the Addition and Division Principles to Solve Equations
Using the Multiplication and Addition Principles to Solve Equations
Interactive Math Notebook Foldable Activities and Quick Checks for Understanding are included to help your students review and reflect on the topics introduced.
These activities will help with structured note-taking, reflection, and review. They can be used for introduction of topics or to reflect/review what you have covered in class discussion. The problems listed in this activity packet build nicely on each other if introduced in the order that they appear. Our students enjoy filling them out and organizing them in their math journals so that they can refer back to them throughout the year. These activities are a great way to promote writing in math. Teacher keys are included for reference for the scaffolded notes and quick checks for understanding. **This zip folder contains non-editable PDF documents.
We also have Introduction to Algebraic Equations Student Practice Pages

How to earn TPT Credits:
"Earn TpT Credits for purchases on TpT. You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback -- both a fair rating and a fair comment -- on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example."--TPT Credits Page
