Quadratic Factoring, The BEST Handout, Guided Notes, Ever, plus practice HW.
Students have so much trouble with factoring trinomials, especially those whose leading coefficient is not one. I see it all the way up through Calculus. I have seen crazy methods and videos, which act like a Band-Aid: temporarily helping, but students forget these methods since they are not built on common algebraic steps.
The Grouping / AC method works every time, and, if it doesn't work, then the trinomial is prime. It is based upon the FOIL method which kids understand and love. This handout gives 4 step by step guided examples and 13 practice problems. I have had tremendous success and lasting power using this method. It's not new; it's in many books, but here it is in a nice format for your classes.
