Factoring quadratics is a skill that requires some practice. These mazes are more engaging than a plain old worksheet or assignment from the text book.
There are 3 different versions of the same worksheets. The problems and maze path are different for each version. My "page count" says 3 - but there are really 6: 3 pages of worksheets and 3 pages of answers.
There is only 1 variable in each expression. Some expressions need a term (numbers and/or variables) divided out before factoring.
Directions: Start in top left corner and factor the expression. choose the correct answers to determine the path. The maze ends where a box has no adjacent correct answer choice.
If YOU prefer (I don't) to reveal the "END" space, write it on the paper before you make copies. I run a mastery class - I don't accept practice work until it is completely correct. I mark when they made a wrong turn, but only identify the END space if a student still struggles after multiple attempts.
Suggestions for use:
*Do one version in class & send another home for practice
*Print an answer sheet for students to check their own work
*Do one version now and save one for review later in the year
