Solving Systems of Equations: Foldable Booklets

*Update* (10/18/16) - Some people are having difficulties with the download below.  Try this one instead.







What you see here are little booklets with tabs.  One each for solving systems by graphing, substitution, and elimination.  

No staples or glue required to make these.  See how....



1) Download and print the documents back-to-back



2) Cut the foldable:


2) Cut along dotted lines:



3) With Example 1 facing you roll the left side of the paper.


4) Insert the rolled paper into the other paper with Example 2 face up.


5) Fold into a booklet.




All three booklets will fit on a 8.5 by 11 sheet of paper.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! I think the "graphing" booklet actually links to blogger.com - would you be able to update this to the link for the booklet? Thanks!

    1. Hm. That's strange. The links work for me. If you give me your email address I will send the file to you directly.

  7. I LOVE your books...but when I try to open them the formatting is slightly off I think. Page 2 is overlapping on page 1 on the graphing book.

    1. I did put a new link at the top of the post a few weeks ago. Let me know if this doesn't work.

  12. When I downloaded the files, it must have messed up the formatting, because they do not line up when printed. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix them ourselves? I think it has something to do with the different Word versions.
