A great way to introduce or review various methods of factoring polynomials, this flip book gives examples to help students remember how to factor and when to use each method. It can be looked at as a flow-chart as well. For example, students should first look at the polynomial to determine if all of the terms have a Greatest Common Factor other than 1, then they should look to see if it is a quadratic trinomial, and if so, which type, etc.
My Algebra 2 students found this resource so helpful! It is intended for use in an Algebra 2 classroom as some of the example special products deal with the sum or difference of cubes but those examples can be skipped or saved for later if you will be teaching Algebra 2 to the same group.
