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 Numbers and the Pythagorean Theorem and includes 8 Stick-n-Solve Foldables:
1. Rational & Irrationals – CCSS.8.NS.A.1
2. Rationals to Decimals – CCSS.8.NS.A.1
3. Decimals to Rationals – CCSS.8.NS.A.1
4. Roots – CCSS.8.NS.A.2, CCSS.8.EE.B.2
5. Rational Approximations – CCSS.8.NS.A.1
6. Finding a Hypotenuse – CCSS.8.G.B.7
7. Finding a Leg – CCSS.8.G.B.7
8. Pythagorean Theorem Converse – CCSS.8.G.B.6
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. For almost every topic covered, I’ve made a foldable. In total I have created about 50 Stick-n-Solve Foldables 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
7. Vocabulary Diagrams
These activities can be found in my Math Interactive Notebook 8th Grade FOLDABLE BUNDLES at 15% or 25% off!!!

Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π2). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of √2, show that √2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.
Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.
Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.
