Made 4 Math Monday – Foldables (Expressions, PEMDAS, Decimals, Fractions and Integers)

on September 7, 2012

I have been making foldables for many years after I found Dinah Zike’s books for sale online.  I own several of them and was so excited to see them used in textbooks, too.  Here are few of the basic ones I do every year, and one new one I tried that is really fun.


After seeing information on I Speak Math, I added the word “turn-around” to some of the phrases.

Order of Operations

Decimal Operations

Started making some pre-written instead of making the students write everything.  I took some key words out.

Fraction Operations

And the coolest one of all, from the Fantastic Flexible Foldables, Integer Infinity Square by Carol DeFreese .  There are some amazing ones at this website http://home.centurytel.net/cdefreese/foldables/.  I took out some information…next time I will take out some more.

So Cool!!!!
