12 Things I Wish I Had Known About Interactive Science Notebooks — The Science Penguin

Laws of Exponents Foldable
We've been working on radicals in Intermediate Algebra since before Christmas. The next item on the agenda is making the connection to rational exponents (and thereby also reviewing the Laws of Exponents). My students are fairly confident with Laws of Exponents, but I thought they might like a foldable to summarize everything in one place once we add in the rules for rational exponents and have to apply all the old rules. If you'd like a copy of the foldable I made, click here for a pdf…

The students trace their footprints and measure using cubes. In this picture, the child is measuring masking tape on the table. The station has four different tape lengths. I was…

This week in our Interactive Math Journals, we made an entry that gave the definition for multiples, LCM, factors, GCF, and prime and composite numbers. Under each flap, we gave the…

The students drew a picture of their president and sorted sentence strips that had key information about…
