This is a guided, color-coded notebook page for the interactive math notebook introducing polynomials. Includes notes on factoring trinomials in the form of x^2 + bx +c.
This is an introduction to the only method I taught my students on factoring trinomials, which I referred to as the "Big Box Method". This is method is the student's favorite way to factor trinomials. All of my students could easily factor trinomials using the "Big Box Method".
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.
