All about SLOPE Foldable

Yes, I am loving some foldables right now!  The kids love them too.  They get to cut, glue, hi-light, and write in little boxes.  Plus, when they are studying, they can just flip up and look at one concept at a time so they are not overwhelmed with an entire worksheet.  Nirvana.

I am coming up with them for review now, but next year I would like to introduce them when we initially take notes.  Then, the students could take the notes right on the foldable and not have to recreate (read – waste time) writing everything again in review.  This will leave more time for working on math problems in class – using the foldable as a guide of course!

Again, printing is the only tricky part to make sure it lines up well.  I also had the students put a small strip of glue behind the words “I can find Slope from” so it would have a sturdy header and flip better.

1. You are rocking these foldables! I used the functions the other day as a review…kids loved it! And asked for more! Thanks for sharing.

• I’m so glad your students are loving them too. Mine get so excited when I bring out the supplies. They say it is easier to study with them as well. Folded paper magic?

2. I love it! And, the idea about the glue behind the header is genius!

• Thanks! It made it very sturdy. The kids need that.

• Thanks! I love them too! I think I’m addicted at this point! lol!

• You’re welcome! I glad you like it. 🙂

3. I loved this foldable! I used it today to review slope with my Algebra 2 class and they did awesome with it! I made a couple changes to it and added undefined/zero slopes but really liked the way you have it organized! The kids were able to cut and fold it with almost no instruction too!

• I would love to see your edits! 🙂 Thanks!

4. This is amazing! I teach a cat A 7th grade math class and this was perfect for my students. I have to modify everything for them, but this worked GREAT! Thank you!

• I’m so glad you liked it and that it worked well for your students! 🙂

5. I used your foldable and loved it! Students really seemed to grasp how to find slope much quicker this year. I just need to figure out how to refigure it next year as I use a composition book for my book of knowlege (where notes and foldables go) and the slope foldable did not fit and had to be folded over to fit in the comp book. Thank you for shariing. I am always referring to your site when I need some ideas.

• I’m so glad that you had success with it! In reconfiguring everything this year so it will fit in the interactive notebooks better! I’ll update this post when I do. We do slope in the spring. 🙂

• Hi Susan,

I just uploaded the pdf. 🙂

• You’re welcome! I’m so glad you could use this! 🙂

6. Hi,

I am working on writing curriculum for Anne Arundel County Public Schools. We are interested in using this foldable in our e-curriculum for teachers to access in their classrooms. Can you please email me letting me know if you are willing to grant us permission to do so?

Thank you.
