Help your students visualize the process for solving absolute value equations and emphasize the conditions for which special solutions arise with absolute value equations. Students are able to easily lead themselves or others through solving absolute value equations, even if it's their first time! This flowchart also promotes the practice of verifying solutions and checking for extraneous solutions, as well as vocabulary!
There are FOUR
(1) A full sheet
size. One flowchart per full sheet of paper.
(2) A half sheet
size. Two flowcharts per sheet of paper. Cut it in half and glue into an interactive notebook!
(3) An interactive notebook
size. Larger than a half sheet and smaller than a full sheet, this size is meant to fit perfectly in a composition notebook with little wasted space.
(4) A mini-book
size. This is my personal favorite, because it allows you to fit 3 examples on one interactive notebook page!
I have really loved laminating a class set of the full sheet size so students can work on the flowchart template with a dry erase marker. Plastic sheet protectors work nicely, as well!
Always have your printer set to "FIT" or "SHRINK OVERSIZED PAGES!" Printers vary with the margins that they use, so this will ensure that all TPT products look their best!
Flowcharts have been left blank for increased flexibility. Pictures in the preview file show how you can utilize the flowchart with ANY problem.
