This is an example of a coordinate plane foldable for use in an interactive math notebook.

How can you make it?

First, make sure that you cut your graph paper so it is a perfect square.  Next, fold all four corners to the middle. Write the Quadrant Numbers on the Outside.  Then, draw an x- and y-axis on the inside.  After that, show examples of points in all quadrants and on the x- and y- axis.  Be sure to include the positive and negative directions.

To get the first picture that says, “Coordinate Plane”, fold quadrants I and II down on top of quadrants III and IV. This foldable takes up hardly any space in your interactive math notebook when it is complete.  It is a great resource to refer to all year!
