Students should be given one answer sheet per person (or group, if you prefer) [first two pages of document]
Prior to class beginning, cut out each of the cities and their factoring problems and place them up around your room.
Have students work through the problems (can be in any order). As a part of their practice, they will have to state the GCF, Factoring Type and factor the expression given.
An answer key is given in the final two pages of the document for your use.
You can use this as an assessment or just a fun activity. This is a word document so you can modify it as you like for the needs of your students.
