Supplies: Three pieces of paper.
What to do:
Fold all three using the hamburger fold, one inside the other. With the crease at the bottom, I cut one inch off the top of the first 1/2 page in order to create a title page and a place to see all the tabs.
Then I filled out a sample page in my son's crayons. The black pen represents what will be typed. And the lame hand drawn graph will become a pretty graph, too. I have filled out what I think I will lead the kids through for slope-intercept form. Then I just made the template for the other pages. I really just needed to see how this looked torn apart so I could figure out the copying of it for Friday's lesson. I will not cover this all in one day. In fact, it won't be finished until the end of the month due to the special block I have for my A Hour class. The kids will learn about graphing first, then writing the equations. I will have them keep this all year long. BIG IDEA: when I need the kids to graph a line in February and exponential laws and quadratics have filled their brain so they have forgotten how to graph a line, they can whip this sucker out and reteach themselves. That's the plan anyway.
I was in a hurry to get this on the blog. I needed something that stated vocab words or what the other variables meant... m = slope, etc. I am not liking VARIABLES on the left side of the page, but I don't know what to put there. Any suggestions would be nice.
Well I have an electronic copy of this document. But I'm not sure how to post it here.
