I find that my students factor very well when they have been taught a lesson and practice a specific type of factoring. Then, they struggle when they need to factor and are not told which type of factoring method to use or formula to apply. I have created this worksheet with a mix of factoring practice problems to give students practice determining how to tackle different types of factoring problems.
