Product Description

Excited to try Decorated notes but need a product that will fit inside your interactive notebooks? Then Decorated Note Brochures are perfect for you!

Research shows that students who sketch, color, or doodle while listening to instruction tend to have better recall. These Decorated Note Brochures combine coloring, note taking, examples, and creative visual triggers to help students remember mathematical concepts.

Once one step equations are mastered, the task begins to solve ever more complicated algebraic equations. This Decorated Note Brochure contains notes and visuals to assist students in solving two step equations by taking them step by step through the process. These equations each contain one constant and one coefficient requiring two steps to arrive at a solution. The Decorated Notes walk students through the solution process by reminding them to undo the order of operations by going after the constant with addition or subtraction first followed by removing (separating) the coefficient with multiplication or division.

Also included is the output practice page (2 to a page) which includes more practice solving two step equations.

I simply have my students pick up their page on their way into class. After bell work they can fold and begin coloring the front of their brochure. My only requirements are that students must listen, they must take all applicable notes, and they must stop coloring/doodling when I am finished teaching. They are welcome to finish coloring and decorating after their classwork is complete or at home/in their free time.

I typically give students a few extra problems to complete that they work out on the right side of their notebooks.

Project the template onto your board, screen using a projector or Elmo, or use Powerpoint or your Smart Board software. I cut and paste into ActivInspire and write directly on my smartboard.
