I used a foldable in my part I today for solving one step equations. I think it helped the students get the hang of it. Has anyone heard of the book The Big Book of Math Ideas or something like that? I heard of it at KCTM this past weekend, but I can't remember the exact title. Also, has anyone else had success stories with foldables?

love, love, LOVE foldables! Went to Dinah Zike's session at NCTM. She is awesome! In my classroom I have used tab books, bound books, double five-tab books, etc. Too numerous to name. Kids like them too. My students tell me they can remember things better for a test because they can remember seeing it on their foldables.

Sounds like we need to get more information on these. Maybe Natalee can help us.

I have a book I would be happy to share. If others are interested I will bring samples to our next MILC meeting.

In fact if you guys still have glencoe review materials from the last textbook adoption cycle, you might have the same book. It is a green book called Dinah Zike's Foldables.

I don't think we have any Glencoe stuff left. If you are not using it, is there anyway you could currier it to us. I would love to share it with the rest of my department.

Natalee sent me the book on foldables and an instructional video on how to use them in the classroom. I have now used foldables in four out of my six classes. I think all of us at Lafayette need to at least try it once. If we find something that works, please share the experience with the rest of us.
Today, I used foldables in Pre-Cal for angles of elevation and angles of depression. In the inside of the foldable we worked an example of each. Hopefully they understand the difference between the two.
