This cut-and-paste, card sort activity is wonderfully flexible! My favorite way to use it is as notes for my students' interactive notebooks. I created the activity to provide structure and guide their thought process as they learn to factor polynomials.
Some suggested uses for these card sorts:
- introductory activity
- math center
Card Sort #1 (Factoring: a = 1) contains polynomials in which the “a” value in ax2 + bx + c is equal to one.
Card Sort #2 (Factoring: a ≠ 1) contains polynomials in which the “a” value in ax2 + bx + c is not equal to one.
An answer key is included.
