This step by step guide is aimed to help students understand how to factor quadratic expressions. Each step included a bold section and color to help students focus on which task they need to complete. I have also included a template for students to use when factoring their own quadratic expressions. This template works with a coefficient of 1 in front of the x squared term, and simple real number solutions. This is my first paid lesson on TpT please tell me what you think and offer any feedback. I hope you enjoy!
