Algebra 1 Factoring x2 + bx + c in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my Algebra 1 class, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to factor a quadratic expression of the form x2 + bx + c and solve quadratic equations by factoring.
NEW: The lesson is in an editable format so you can tailor the lesson to your class. The problems and clipart can’t be edited due to the TOU and to maintain the copyright integrity of the product. You can change the problem number and the names. Using student’s or teacher’s names can be another hook. If you need an alternative version because your country uses different measurements, units, or slight wording adjustment for language differences just email me at PrestonPowerPoints@gmail.com. I am respond to email quickly.
The presentation has 90 slides with LOTS of whiteboard practice. Use as many or as few of the problems to help your students learn each concept. For more PowerPoint lessons & materials visit Preston PowerPoints.
Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique, guided animation, that helps to eliminate confusion and guides the student through the problem. The lesson highlights each step of the problem as the teacher is discussing it, and then animates it to the next step within the lesson. Every step of every problem is shown, even the minor or seemingly insignificant steps. A helpful color-coding technique engages the students and guides them through the problem (Green is for the answer, red for wrong or canceled numbers, & blue, purple & sometimes orange for focusing the next step or separating things.) Twice as many examples are provided, compared to a standard textbook. All lessons have a real-world example to aid the students in visualizing a practical application of the concept.
This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
High School: Algebra » Reasoning with Equations & Inequalities A.REI.4b
Solve equations and inequalities in one variable.
4. Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
b. Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for x2 = 49), taking square roots, completing the square, the quadratic formula and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation. Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as a ± bi for real numbers a and b.
High School: Algebra » Seeing Structure in Expressions A.SSE.3a
Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems.
3. Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.
a. Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.
