Foldable notes for one-step addition and subtraction equations, and one for multiplication and division equations. Equations contain integers and rational numbers, so this resource is appropriate for 7th grade or higher. The foldables are perfect for interactive notebooks, without having to take tons of times for cutting, folding and gluing. Just two folds and your class is ready for note-taking! In addition to the foldables, there are also 4 worksheets included in this resource.
Each foldable folds into a “book”, with a cover and 6 mini-pages. One page is left blank for gluing into an interactive notebook.
The mini-pages in the addition/subtraction foldable focus on the following topics:
Equation Solving Basics (2 pages), Addition Equation, Subtraction Equations, Solving equations where the variable is in different spots, Solving equations with multiple signs (such as p - -3 = 9 or y + -3 = -8).
The pages in the multiplication/division foldable focus on the following topics:
How to solve a multiplication equation, Practice solving multiplication equations, Multiplication equations with non-whole number answers, Division equations, Understanding similarity of equations like m/4=8 and 1/4 m=8, Equations with fractions (solved by multiplying the reciprocal)
There are also four practice worksheets provided. Two of the worksheets are addition and subtraction equations (one with integers, one with rational numbers). The other two worksheets are multiplication and division equations. The first of these worksheets uses mainly integers, although some of the multiplication equations will have improper fractions as answers. The equations with fractions on this first worksheet will have whole number answers. On the worksheet with multiplication and division equations with rational numbers, all equations have fractions and decimals. The answers will have some fractions and some decimals. Answer keys have not only the answers, but the correct work as well.
