### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you having trouble getting your students to take effective notes during math lessons? Are you looking for quick activities that can be completed in a math journal or at the end of a lesson as a check for understanding? If so, these activities are for you.

This packet of scaffolded notes is perfect for Algebra 2 or Integrated Math students working with polynomials. They can be used for introduction of topics or to reflect/review what you have covered in class discussion. The prompts listed in this activity packet build nicely on each other if introduced in the order that they appear. Our students enjoy filling them out and organizing them in their math journals so that they can refer back to them throughout the year. These activities are a great way to promote writing in math. Keys are included for reference.
