Real Numbers and Functions INB Pages

10 September 2016
This is part three of the interactive notebook pages for my first unit in Algebra 1.  You may want to take a look at part one and part two.

Day 6 - Real Numbers

This is another foldable by Lisa Davenport.  I liked the foldable, but my kids had so much trouble with this!  It stressed them out.  They had a hard time understanding the idea of subsets.  I used Algebra 1 friendly language, but it was a stretch for them.  Once they understood integer and rational number, I just kind of called it good.  Honestly, I think that’s ok for now.  I’ll have these kids again for Geometry and Algebra 2, so we can continue to work on this as they expand their math understanding.

I created this foldable because the textbook had lots of little vocabulary things all thrown into one section.  It felt kind of like a hodgepodge, so I just went with it.  My students had a hard time with the first page, but they hung with me.  My Algebra 1 group doesn’t whine (yet) and I really like that about them.

My students are starting to call these types of foldable “hamburger books”.  In elementary school, lots of teachers talking about folding paper “like a hamburger” or “like a hotdog”.  We laughed about it one day in class and now the name has stuck.

Day 7 - Function Patterns

This day was a super basic introduction to function patterns.  The top of the page just had some vocabulary and the accordion foldable had examples.  I left a giant space for students to write their own notes as we talked about functions.

This was the last page for this unit.  It’s mostly vocabulary.  I just wanted to get them used to the vocabulary and looking at tables and graphs.  We color-coded everything.

After this we had another quiz, reviewed, then had a test.

  1. Check out Math Equals Love's graphic organizer for irrational and rational numbers. It helped my students see the subsets. I also created her boxes that she uses to show how they nest.

  2. I love your notebook. We did a lot of this in Unit 1 of my Algebra 2 class. Haha. Please continue sharing.
