I am all for students understanding how and why procedures work, but sometime you just need a foldable to get through to them.

Many of my students come to my class listing multiples of a particular set of numbers in order to find the least common multiple. This is all well and fine until I ask them to find the LCM of monomials with variables. Now they don't have a procedure to help them. So below is a picture story of my foldable. I forgot to put the stapler in the the first photo with the supplies, but I guess you could get away with not using it.

This is what I came online to look for! Thank you!

ReplyDeleteLove this! I'm using this for Algebra 1 for Algebraic Fractions!

ReplyDeleteLove this idea!!! My three girls will find this very helpful. Thanks so much!!

ReplyDeleteSimply super! Like I said, it's simple and does a super job demonstrating GCF and LCM. It's terrific that the kids make these themselves...I think the info "sticks" better when it's self-made.
