I use this to review factoring with my Algebra 1 classes. It includes greatest common factors, factoring by grouping, factoring trinomials with 1 as a leading coefficient, factoring trinomials with a leading coefficient other than 1, difference of squares, perfect square trinomials, and multiple step factoring. An answer sheet and instructions are included.
I use relays to review for lots of subjects. The students think that they are playing a game and try hard to get the correct answers so that their team can "win".

Common Core Standards:
Interpret the structure of expressions.
A-SSE 1. Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.
a. Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.
A-SSE 2. Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x4 – y4 as (x2)2 – (y2)2, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x2 – y2)(x2 + y2).
Previous CA Standard for Algebra 1:
11.0: Students apply basic factoring techniques to second- and simple third-degree polynomials. These techniques include finding a common factor for all terms in a polynomial, recognizing the difference or two squares, and recognizing perfect squares of binomials.
