I LOVE templates! It makes life so much easier to know my warm-up is all set and ready to go. Here are 4 FREE warm-up templates that will work in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. I use them in my Special Ed Algebra 2 classes. The repeated practice on the skills covered by the templates give my students a ton of confidence and has helped them retain information so much better.
EDIT: I love templates so much, there are now more than 4! You can see all I have made so far at the end of this post.
All of these templates are available for FREE download in my TpT store. They will also be linked at the bottom of this post. You can also find some supporting documents in the "Freebies" section of the sidebar -->
First up: An Algebra 1 Warm-up Template:
This template is the result of a teacher seeing my Warm-up template for Algebra 2 and wanting one for Algebra 1. You can either: give your students a graph and have them find the rest or give them an equation and have them find the rest. Oh, you can maybe even give them a table to start! I love warm-up templates because they are versatile to fit student needs.
Next up: An Algebra 2 Warm-up Template:
I can't even begin to tell you how many of these I printed last year. I used them for warm-ups and exit tickets or just a quick check for understanding when I was having trouble reading my students. This year I plan to laminate them onto card stock that is larger than the template. This will also allow for some work space as they work out the answers with a dry-erase marker. I may also use sheet protectors. You can join the conversation over on Facebook. To use the template, I project either a graph or an equation on the board and students fill in the rest from there.
Third in Line: This Algebra 2 Quick Check:
I like this quick check for it's "increasing" and "decreasing" fields because my students need practice finding those intervals. To use this template, I project either an equation or a graph onto the whiteboard and students find: the function (they write it down if given, they find it if a graph is given), domain, range, increasing, decreasing. I used this one less than the Algebra 2 Warm-up template, but I will use it again during our unit on increasing and decreasing.
A Warm-up template for Projectile Motion
We used the heck out of this one this year! I had combined our graphing calculator unit with our projectile motion unit. I loved doing it that way, however there were massive learning curves all over the place. Kids couldn't find windows, they weren't sure which side was x-min, y-may, etc., they weren't sure which point showed time in air and where left and right bound were for the positive zero. I finally reeled it all in with this template and everything calmed.way.down. I also lined our classroom walls with these free anchor charts for finding zeros and maximums.
I just created this quick check template for factoring that you can read about here.
