Learning Lab: Creating & Utilizing Interactive Notebooks in the Math Classroom

The purpose of this two-day learning lab is to provide participants with exposure to the Interactive Student Notebook system. During the seminar, discussion will focus on the benefits of the Interactive Student Notebook system and the “how to” of its implementation. Participants will learn how to design and set-up Interactive Student Notebooks, organizing input and output on the page. Participants will also adapt current resources to work with the Interactive Notebook System and create foldables and templates that they can bring back to the classroom and utilize.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • appropriately set up pages of an Interactive Student Notebook (input vs output)
  • create foldables and templates that will be used to effectively organize and present math content in an Interactive Student Notebook
  • adapt the formatting of current resources so that they can be utilized in an Interactive Student Notebook



This course is appropriate for educators teaching 3rd through 12th grades.



Participants should bring a computer and materials for 1-2 units of study (textbook, worksheets, handouts, reference materials, etc).



Participants wishing to receive 1 graduate credit for this course must bring payment of $200 on the first day of the seminar. Payment must be made via credit card or check made out to Fitchburg State University. Cash or Purchase Order will not be accepted for this payment.
