PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students never get enough practice factoring, but now they can! Students will need to factor at least 20 problems just to solve the maze, but most students will end up solving all 50! The Factor Maze has 3 Mazes: Easy (x^2 + bx + c), Medium (ax^2 + bx + c), and Hard (which includes Greatest Common Factors (GCF).

Instructions: Start at the top left hand corner, and solve the maze by factoring every polynomial you come across. Write the factorization under the polynomial for easy reference. You can only move one square up, down, left, or right when it SHARES a factor with the current square. You have solved the maze when you exit at the bottom right.

Such a great idea! Students who understand factoring are able to complete the assignment using the minimum # of problems, where as students who are struggling end up getting more practice!

Product Questions & Answers

On  February 10, 2011Caryn Loves Math (TpT Seller) asked:
How many worksheets come with this lesson. The sample shows 1, does it come with more. Do you include an answer key. Would you consider reducing the price. If it is only 1 worksheet, it is not worth $3.
