This post has been a long time in the making. It's a collection of free math cheat sheets that you can print and give to students for their notes or even enlarge into anchor charts. Some I made for my own students, others came from teacher requests. Some of the cheat sheets in this post now also include links to short video tutorials.

I started writing this post in 2017 with the math reference sheets I was making for my algebra 2 students. A lot of them can also be used to support algebra 1 students because of the overlap in those two courses. Since 2017, I've added a bunch more cheat sheets to this post, mainly for students in algebra and algebra 2, and some for younger kids based on teacher requests.

Algebra word wall |

The cheat sheets in this post can easily be enlarged into posters and added to your classroom wall so that students can reference them anytime. Here is a quadratic keywords poster enlarged to 4 pages that I printed at home:

More algebra and algebra 2 activities and ideas can be found by using the search bar here on my blog or by clicking here for algebra and here for algebra 2.

Below are a couple big, discounted bundles for algebra and algebra 2 that will allow you to easily differentiate curriculum. Each activity inside is also available separately through the above links.

And here are the links to all of the math cheat sheets on my blog. Clicking on an image will bring you to its post where the sheet can be downloaded. I use Dropbox for a lot of the sheets. If it gives you a hard time, please send me an email to shana@scaffoldedmath.com and I can send the sheet another way.

Help. I can't find the math cheat sheets...I keep circling around. I'd really like to see them.

ReplyDeleteIf you click on the blue "MATH CHEAT SHEETS" in this post you will be taken to all of my posts with math cheat sheets in them.

DeleteI don't see the blue math cheat sheets that you mention.

DeleteSorry about that. I replaced the link with the thumbnail images to every post with cheat sheets so that they would all fit on one web page.

DeleteThat is a lot of clicking. Wow! You sure have a lot of stuff!! Super Job!

ReplyDeleteThank you Marilyn! I hope you have a great year!

DeleteI'd like a copy of the integer operations cheat sheet, but can't figure out how to download it. Help!

ReplyDeleteIt's listed on Teachers pay Teachers as "Integers Graphic Organizer", but there are a lot of them so I am happy to email it to you. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com. And I apologize for just getting back to you now... Blogger's comment notifaction emails have been broken (just learned that today!)

DeleteWould love to see a graphing a linear and/or proportional relationship cheat sheet.

ReplyDeleteThank you Michelle! I hope to create one by mid September. It will be linked here.

DeleteI don't se any blue link to the math cheat sheets, can you help?

ReplyDeleteHi Marty, thank you for your comment. For any of the sheets you see in the post, just click on its picture (avoiding the Pinterest icon) and you’ll be taken to its post.

DeleteThese are wonderful! Thank you!

ReplyDeleteMy pleasure! I hope you are having a great school year!

DeleteHey. You so many AMAZING things on this site, but I'm having a little trouble downloading the PDF version of all these pictures. Could maybe help me out a little, please?

ReplyDeleteHi Nazeeya, if you click on one of the images, it will bring you to a post where you can download the sheet for free. If you are having trouble, please send me an email and I can help.

DeleteHey. Thank you so much. I should have looked harder. So sorry for all the hassle. Thank you again:)

DeleteNo apology needed:) I hope you are having a great year.

DeleteDo you have any Quick Checks or Cheat Sheets on transformations of quadratics? I really liked how your Exponential Function Quick Check has it where they are comparing between the parent function and the function they are given; and your Graphing Exponential/Log Functions sheet shows them how it was transformed from the parent. Thanks for all the Freebies, they are great references/notes/exit tickets/posters for students!

ReplyDeleteHi Courtney! I do have cheat sheets for quadratics. The setup is a little different as they are older. In this post is a link to the ones we'd use in class (cheat sheet link in blue):

Love Love your word walls. I was wondering is their a wall for polynomials. It's not in Algebra 1 and I purchased? Also, is it possible to add to the slides when something is missing? thanks! You are great, if I forgot that part...

ReplyDeleteThank you for your kind words! As a coincidence, I am taking new photos of the Algebra 2 word wall today to make the virtual version and just photographed the polynomials section. It's just for sketching polynomials, so may not be what you need. But please email if there is something you had in mind.

DeleteThis is a really awesome resource. Thank you SO much!

ReplyDeleteIt's really my pleasure. If you need a topic covered, I'd love to help. I have very much enjoyed making these math reference sheets and videos.

DeleteHelp, I am looking for your math word problem table, and I can't seem to find it. It helps students break the problem down to be able to solve it.

ReplyDeleteI’m not 100% sure which this is. Can you please send me an email? shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteHi Shana,

ReplyDeleteYour math posters help my students a lot!

You are the best !!

So awesome to hear this! I hope you are having a good year!

DeleteHello! I have a hard copy of “function cutouts. Trying to locate an answer key please and thank you

ReplyDeleteHi Amanda, would you be willing to send a screenshot of what you have so I can point you in the right direction? I have a few functions activities involving cutouts, so am unsure which one you have. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteYour cheat sheets are AMAZING!!! Thank you :)
