This circuit worksheet consists of 20 questions, including factoring quadratic expressions a = 1 and difference of squares (at this point, I want students to think difference of squares as the quadratic expressions with b = 0).

As a follow up, I give a small quiz or a supplement practice after this circuit worksheet just to ensure students understand the factoring process.
Circuit worksheet is an alternative to Scavenger Hunt that I do with my students. It is easier to manage with a large class (a class of 30 students) but still keep students engaged!
Circuit worksheets are one of the favorites in my class. Students love the self-check aspect of the worksheet. In each circuit, the problems become progressively more difficult so it is great for differentiated instruction.
There are no answer keys included in my circuits since the answers are embedded in the circuit. The only prep you have to do as a teacher is to work the circuit ahead so you understand the idea of the circuit worksheet.
