Factoring Polynomials Gone Fishin' Game
This game is a fun way to practice factoring polynomials. Red fish are greatest common factor (GCF), yellow fish are difference of squares, green fish are trinomials where a = 1, and blue fish are trinomials where a is greater than 1. You can play with an interactive whiteboard and students can tap on the board (or throw a koosh ball). It also works very well without an interactive whiteboard. Students come up to the computer and select a fish with the mouse.

There are 44 total questions. Because it's organized by color, it helps students recognize the types of factoring. After I play this game, we begin to mix up the factoring.
