Dinah Zike's Notebooking Central Notebook Foldables Pre-Algebra: Tools for Algebraic Reasoning
This booklet contains 70 templates specifically designed to target the areas where students seem to struggle the most prior to entering Algebra 1. Topics include order of operations, equations, variables, inequalities, flashcards, absolute value, operations on integers, the tools of algebra, properties in algebra, ratios, proportions, and percents, rational numbers, square roots, the Pythagorean Theorem, and scientific calculator--for the complete list of topics, please see the Table of Contents.
The Notebooking Central series of booklets was designed in response to teacher requests for Notebook Foldables that:
- provide graphics to aid memory and comprehension
- provide tabs that elicit student responses on the backs of tabs, underneath tabs, and on the notebook page surrounding tabs
- provide ideas for the use of Notebook Foldables within different content areas
Notebook Foldables can easily be integrated into any notebooking program. For more in-depth information on Notebook Foldables strategies, please consider Dinah Zike's Notebook Foldables for Spirals, Binders, and Composition Books book and companion CD, a 2011 Teachers' Choice Award winner.

I love making foldable notebooks with my class and this resource saved me a lot of time for my pre algebra classes.

I've been using the book to guide notebooking with my 8th grade class this year. It is the first time any of us have made math notebooks or used any kind of foldables. The templates in the book have been quite helpful in organizing our information and are a huge time saver.
