This is a matching-style activity that can be a good intro to factoring equations, or a review of the same. All expressions are in the format ax^2 + bx + c, and for all equations, a=1. Additionally, all coefficients/constants are positive. There are a total of 12 expressions and their factored form. These can be printed onto colored paper and cut apart (you could even laminate them if you're feeling crazy). This would be a great math center, small group/pair activity, or could even be done as flashcards.
(Key: The correct factored expression is right below the original expression. )
