Special Education Algebra. This unit simplifies factoring for students who struggle with Algebra or Special Ed Algebra and Algebra 2 students. Included are warm ups, notes, homework assignments and answer keys that take factoring step-by-step so that students do not get overwhelmed with this tough topic. Each day's warm up, note sheets and homework assignment has the same picture in the corner making it easier for students (and teachers!) to distinguish each day's warm up, notes and homework assignment from the next.
There are 5 days of notes and homework assignments in this download along with 7 warm ups (2 extra in case your students need extra practice). Each day focuses on a different type of factoring (see below). I use these materials in my self-contained Special Ed Algebra 2 classes.
Here are the topics covered (each has a warm up, note sheets and homework assignment):
Factoring trinomials with positive B and positive C (A = 1)
Factoring trinomials with negative B and positive C (A = 1)
Factoring trinomials with negative C (A = 1)
Factoring binomials and trinomials with GCFs
Factoring differences of squares
My students did very well with factoring this year using this set of warm ups, notes and homework assignments. We started our factoring unit with this free Prezi
to get used to the thinking necessary to factor and then went into the materials in this download. Breaking things down into different days works really well!
