There are so many different formula's that students must remember when it comes to physical science. Often times students struggle with knowing where to plug in numbers, which formula to use, and what the labels are for the specific variables. I have created a foldable that takes care of all of that. These foldable's were created with the students in mind. They provide students with a hands-on manipulative that will allow them to quickly determine which formula to use, where to input the numbers, which operation to use, and the label that their answer should have.
I have taught using the triangle method for the past 8 years, but just recently began using interactive notebooks. My students loved having a quick reference tool that they could use to help them with their assignments. When we reached the unit covering density and force I began looking for foldable's that my students could use to help them remember the formulas. While there are many different triangles out there that can be printed off and used, I wanted something that allowed my students to manipulate and visualize the formula, so I decided to create a triangle that allowed them to do just that. These foldable's, not only provide the formula but they also allow students to find any of the three variables in the formula. Word problems can confuse even the highest achievers, but when my students used their triangle formula foldable's they found that the word problems weren't as difficult as they first seemed.
Each foldable contains directions on how to cut and fold, along with how to utilize the triangle. There are four different flaps that allow students to cover up the variable that they are looking for while the remaining two are left uncovered. The operation that students need to perform to solve the problem is shown, along with the labels for each variable. Students will no longer need to look back in the book to find the formula and then attempt to determine which number goes with which variable.
This bundle currently contains the following triangle foldable's:
- Density Formula
- Average Speed Formula
- Acceleration Formula
- Force Formula
- Pressure Formula
- Work Formula
I do have these foldable's for sale individually.
