Factoring Polynomials Task Cards
Students will practice factoring polynomials by working through these 32 task cards. The cards are organized as follows:
• Cards 1-6: Factoring a GCF
• Cards 7-12: Factoring a Difference of Squares
• Cards 13-20: Factoring a Trinomial where a = 1
• Cards 21-28: Factoring a Trinomial where a > 1
• Cards 29-32: Factoring Polynomials with Four Terms (by Grouping)
Greatest common factor is reinforced throughout several cards.
These cards were designed for an Algebra 1 level class. For a more advanced version with sum of cubes, difference of cubes, and more complex polynomials, check out my Algebra 2 Factoring Task Cards.
A recording worksheet is included for students to show work. They can check their answers by scanning the QR code on each card. Connection to the internet is not required to scan the code. However, a QR scanner app is required on the device. There are several free apps available to download.
I included a non-QR code version as well if the technology is not available in your classroom.
