What are Interactive Math Notebooks?
Interactive math notebooks are teaching pages used to introduce and teach new math concepts and skills. Each set of notebook pages includes definitions, explanations, rules, and/or algorithms that may be needed to address each standard. Sample and practice problems are also included to be used for guided practice. Once completed, these notebook pages serve as anchor charts for students to refer back to as a reference tool throughout the year.
How do I use them with my students?
Notebook pages can be used to introduce, reinforce, or review math standards. They can be used for direct instruction for a whole class, or in small groups. Students first cut out the pages and other pieces, and glue them into their notebooks. With teacher guidance, students take notes and work out practice problems related to the standard being addressed. Students can then highlight or add color to their notebook pages.
