4 FREE Algebra and Algebra 2 Warm-up Templates

I LOVE templates. It makes life so much easier to know my warm up is all set to go. Here are 4 free warm-up templates that will work in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. The repeated practice offered 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. Each individual template is linked below.

Free Algebra 1 Warm up template

This Algebra 1 template is the result of a teacher seeing my Algebra 2 warm up template and wanting one for her students. You give students one piece of information (either the graph, table or equation) and have them fill in the rest. Here is the template inside a page protector:

As a special education teacher, I know how hard it can be to reach the needs of every student. A big part of this is finding ways for students to find little successes during each class. Templates are great for this because they offer consistency and practice. 

Algebra Activities Bundle

It is important to me to create activities that are fun, meet the standards and allow all students to find success. When students start feeling successful, it snowballs into wanting more success. The activities in my Algebra Activities Bundle work for all students, especially those who may be a little afraid of math.

I can't even begin to tell you how many of these Algebra 2 warm-up templates I printed last year. I use them for warm-ups and exit tickets or just a quick check for understanding when my students were hard to read. 

Teachers slip them into pocket protectors or even laminate to save paper. This allows students to work out answers with a dry-erase marker. To use the template, I project either a graph or an equation on the board and students fill in the rest from there.

Free 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. 

Free Projectile Motion Warm up template

We use the heck out of this projectile motion template during our quadratics unit.

  1. These are great! Thank you!!

  2. These are fantastic! I am wondering if you have any recommendations for similar templates for data analysis at the upper elementary (graph interpretation etc). I have searched on TPT as well as on pinterest. I am looking for exactly what you are showing, except those earlier concepts.

    1. I would love to do this! Would you please email me at scaffoldedmath@gmail.com so I can ask some questions about what you feel should be included? My upper elementary understanding is a little fogggy:)

    A great set of resources - many thanks :)

  4. I was very disappointed that I am not teaching Alg this year but still downloaded these because they are AWESOME!
    Thanks for sharing them with all of us!

    1. Hi Donna! Thank you so much! I'm not sure what you are teaching this year but I am just about to add a Geometry template...

  5. Hello, I am trying to download the Algebra 2 Template but it seems to send me back to the original post. Please advise! These are so useful! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Wow, that is annoying of me! I will fix that! Thank you! Here is the link to the free download: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Algebra-2-Warm-up-Template-2297000

    You have great ideas.thanks for sharing.

  7. Do you have one for Exponential Functions?

    1. Hi Carey, I'd maybe use the Algebra 2 sheet for exponentials. But if you have something in mind, I am happy to make a specific one for you. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com

  8. Do you have any templates or quick checks for 6th grade math?

    1. I don't but I am happy to make one. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com
