I used these interactive notebook pages during my functions unit in Algebra 1. It built on my student's previous knowledge, which I loved!

There are three main parts on the notebook page.

First, I reminded students of the definition of the words "discrete" and "continuous". They learned these words in Pre-Algebra and in science class. However, I wanted to make sure they were in their notes. Then, we completed a foldable relating an equation, table, and a graph. I also had students label key features of a graph.

After we completed the different parts of the notes page, I had students practice with a partner on a practice page. I copied the page at 80% so it would fit in their notebook. I could have left it full sized and used it as homework though.

This is what the pages look like as a "spread". I like to plan pages as a two page spread, like a newspaper. :) To keep my students interested, I copied everything on different colors and I let them choose what colors they wanted. Honestly, I dropped a stack of colored paper on the way to the copier, so I made it work ;)

You can find the foldable and practice page here.
