### Make a One Page Book, Inspired by Alisa Golden

What??? Tutorials! Tutorials are everywhere! Artists in Blogland has a monthly "Techniques on Tuesday" tutorial going on. The challenge over at Inspiration Avenue this week is to share a tutorial. Every Tuesday, Kristin Dudish has been doing a tutorial try-out and inviting others to try it too and link up. Carolyn Dube's Gelli Plate class is up and running with lots of great tutorials.

### Adding and Subtracting Fractions Using the Four-Square Method

### Algebra 1 Unit 3 - Relations and Functions Interactive Notebook Pages

Before Christmas, we finished one of my favorite units of the year in Algebra 1 - Relations and Functions. With regards to pacing, we are WAY behind where I would like to be, but there's not much I can do about that. Last year, my pacing was off in the other direction.

### Graphing Functions Water Lab

The math department at my school is top notch at collaborating and coming up with innovative ways to reach kids. One of the Algebra 2 activities they developed is a water lab for introducing nonlinear functions. It is a great activity for the beginning of the year or really anytime functions are being introduced. By the end of the first class students are already talking about "fast to slow" and "slow to fast". It's awesome! This activity can also be used with younger kids as a way to…
