This is a guided, color-coded notebook page for the interactive math notebook introducing polynomials. Includes notes on factoring trinomials in the form of ax^2 + bx +c.
This is the 2nd edition to the "Big Box Method" for factoring trinomials. In this set of guided notes, there are color-coded steps for factoring trinomials when a is negative and for factoring out the GCMF and then using the "Big Box".
Blackline master and color-coded answer key included.
** My Interactive Note Pages include all or some of the following: step by step color-coded notes, diagrams, graphic organizers and example problems.
My Interactive Math Notebook Pages were designed to use in my IMN. The students keep the color-coded notes in a 3-pronged folder. The back of each note page was left blank and had the motto, "I Reflect, Therefore I Own My Learning", (this is the left side). The left side is where the students did their reflections on the notes that are on the right side of the page.
