Power Point includes animated step-by-step instructions for creating a foldable for comparing graphing using slope formula and using RISE/RUN to determine the slope from a graphs. Materials needed for each student: scissors, ruler, 2 to 3 markers, 2 printable graphs (provide in power point), glue, and a piece of card-stock or construction paper.
Mathematical foldables (or graphic organizers) are a great way to put important information at students fingertips. They can be used to introduce concepts or to review them. Foldables are a nice change of pace from regular note-taking and students like doing them. Lastly, they are a great way to differentiate by allowing low performing or special education students to use them on tests or quizzes.
