This product includes foldables with suggested notes, worksheets, vocab diagrams, a practice test, and a test covering transformations, congruence, and similarity. They are designed to align with the common core eighth grade math standards. You save 20% by purchasing the foldables and assessments together!
In my class, I use the left hand side of the notebook for guided notes with foldables, while the right-hand side is reserved for individual practice work. Every stick-n-solve foldable has suggested notes to go along with it. For each topic there is a one-sided worksheet to be glued into interactive notebooks on the right hand page opposite the notes. I usually trim just a bit around the edge of the worksheets with a paper cutter so that they fit perfectly, but this is not necessary. At the end of each unit, my students always complete essential vocabulary diagrams and a practice test booklet to include in their interactive notebooks.
I started using Stick-n-Solve Foldables in my Math Interactive Notebooks last year and it worked great! There are a few things about these Stick-n-Solves that I really have enjoyed. First, my students no longer spend time copying down problems when we take notes. I always thought this was a waste of time. Now, the problems are on the foldable ready to be solved. The students like to cut and fold and glue while working in their notebooks. It gives them something tactile to do during class. Finally, the foldables are a built in review tool for your students. At the end of a unit, they can go back through their notebooks and solve all the problems on the Stick-n-Solves. Since the work is on the inside, they just open them up to check their answers. Each foldable in this set has two per page. My students are set up in partners, so I give one sheet to each partner pair to cut in half. There is no extra paper on these foldable templates (which means no little scraps of paper to trim off and end up all over the floor).
This Bundle focuses on congruence and similarity and includes 8 Stick-n-Solve Foldables. For each foldable, you will see two pictures. You will see a draft picture of notes for the topic, and a picture of the solutions on the inside of the foldable:
1. Translations – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
2. Reflections – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
3. Rotations – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
4. Congruence Sequences - CCSS.8.G.A.2
5. Transformations & Coordinates - CCSS.8.G.A.3
6. Dilations - CCSS.8.G.A.4
7. Similarity Sequences - CCSS.8.G.A.4
8. Angle-Angle Criterion - CCSS.8.G.A.5
The bundle also includes 8 formative assessments (each is a one-sided worksheet), a practice test booklet, vocabulary diagrams, and summative assessment (unit test). ALL of these include answer keys. Here they are as they align to the common core standards.
1. Translations Practice – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
2. Reflections Practice – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
3. Rotations Practice – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
4. Congruence Sequences Practice - CCSS.8.G.A.2
5. Transformations & Coordinates Practice - CCSS.8.G.A.3
6. Dilations Practice - CCSS.8.G.A.4
7. Similarity Sequences Practice - CCSS.8.G.A.4
8. Angle-Angle Criterion Practice - CCSS.8.G.A.5
9. Congruence & Similarity Practice Test
10. Congruence and Similarity Assessment
11. Vocabulary Diagrams
In your zip file, each foldable is paired with a corresponding homework assignment. In addition, you will find a file for the vocab diagrams, one for the practice test, and finally, the test.
For almost every topic covered, I’ve made a foldable and an assessment. In total I have created 50 Stick-n-Solve Foldables and coordinating assessments for 8th grade common core math and organized them into the following bundles:
1. Congruence & Similarity
2. Numbers & Pythagorean Theorem
4. Linear Relationships & Analysis
5. Equations & Systems
6. Angles & Volume
These activities can be found in many different bundles, including my ENTIRE 8th Grade Math Curriculum! Check out my store for all of your options!

Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:
Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.
Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.
Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.
Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
