This activity maze expects students to factor trinomials where a is NOT equal to 1 (ax2 + bx + c) then follow the direction that has ONE OF THE TWO factors. They are basically finding which of the options is a factor of the given trinomial. This is to ensure students are factoring the given trinomial instead of just multiplying the solution.
When given multiple-choice solutions, how can you be sure your students are not just multiplying out the choices instead of actually factoring? This maze solves that problem.
