The objectives for this lesson are Factor a quadratic expression of the form ax2 + bx + c and Solve quadratic equations by factoring.
I complete this lesson over two days, the first day being prime 'a' values and the next day being composite 'a' values. Omit the second opening activity and objectives slides if you want to complete it all in one day.
I teach this lesson first with the FOIL box as a way to show the different parts of the factoring, but then eventually move away from it. You can delete the foil boxes if you are choosing to use an alternate method.
These lessons are done in Smart Notebook. Each lesson contains an Opening Activity (bell ringer);an objectives slide, which includes the common core standards the lesson is tied to; a definition slide; example slides; ‘try’ slides for the students; a stop and reflect slide partway through the lesson, and a recap slide. Feel free to edit, change, add, or subtract from the lessons as you like. Make them your own.
