PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Factoring Polynomials Boot Camp

I try to make this more fun by hamming it up with camouflage attire and a few calisthenics in the beginning of the lesson.

Choose to begin with multiplying or factoring. I prefer to begin with multiplying. Students should strive for fluent foiling (combining inners and outers in their head).
Forms A, C, E, G, I – Begin with Multiplying
Forms B, D, F, H, J – Begin with Factoring

The problems are purposely repetitive so that students can start to recognize the patterns of signs in the trinomials and factors.

+ + or – – when the c term is positive
+ – when the c term is negative

Form A/B – Factoring GCF
Form C/D – Factoring Trinomials when a=1 and c=positive
Form E/F – Factoring Trinomials when a=1 and c=negative
Form G/H – Factoring Difference of 2 squares
Form I/J – Factoring Trinomials when a<>1

Four Steps to Mastery Option 1
Step 1 - Begin with multiplying the factors
Step 2 - Fold back the original problems
Step 3 - Factor ALL of the polynomials
Step 4 - Unfold the original problems and check your work.

Four Steps to Mastery Option 2
Step 1 - Begin with factoring the polynomial
Step 2 - Fold back the original problems
Step 3 - Multiply ALL of the factors
Step 4 - Unfold the original problems and check your work.

Also great for partner work. One student completes steps 1 and 2 and then the other student completes steps 3 and 4.

I plan to add more pages as time permits.
