Factoring Perfect Square Trinomials
The lesson covers in a fun detailed how to multiply and factor perfect square trinomials. Students are also shown how to solve equations that contain perfect square trinomials. Rectangular models are employed throughout this product. I have found that the “rectangular model method” to be the best method when factoring trinomials or multiplying two binomials, because it gives students a visual model of the factoring process. And when students grasp concepts on a deeper level they will gain deeper insights into mathematics and have better problem solving skills in the long run. . My students have so much benefitted from this lesson and I hope your students benefit as well!
