Product Description
Students who have difficulty with factoring linear expressions may find it helpful to use this template. Print, laminate, and use a dry-erase marker for multiple uses. Different shapes are used to designate and track the coefficient, constant, and GCF.
Step 1: Write the expression to be factored.
Step 2: Draw a circle around the coefficient and a triangle around the constant.
Step 3: Write the coefficient in the circle and list its factors.
Step 4: Write the constant in the triangle and list its factors.
Step 5: Identify the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and write it in the square.
Step 6: Write the factored version of the coefficient, using the shapes to help identify which numbers go where.
Step 7: Write the factored version of the constant, using the shapes to help identify which numbers go where.
Step 8: Write the factored expression.
