This scavenger hunt activity is a great review of factoring using greatest common factor, difference of two squares ("DOTS"), trinomials (coefficient "a" is equal to 1), tricky trinomials (coefficient "a" does not equal 1), and factoring completely!
The activity can be done individually or with a partner.
Student Answer Sheet
Teacher Answer Key
Simply hang the 18 8.5x11 posters around your room in any fashion! Students can start at any poster. They will record the letter of the poster at which they start, complete the question (recording which type(s) of factoring they used), and find the poster that has their answer. They will record the letter of that poster, answer the question on that poster, and so on! If they complete each question correctly, they will end up back at the poster where they began! This is very satisfying, self-checking activity.
