PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a set of 5 questions that asks students to sort given expressions into two columns based upon if they are equivalent to the given trinomial polynomial or not.

The trinomials presented represent a range of styles:
- A trinomial with positive coefficients
- A trinomial with negative coefficients
- A trinomial with a greatest common factor
- A trinomial with A > 1
- A trinomial with A > 1 and a GCF

This activity is based upon the style of questions asked by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. Instead of simply asking students to pick the one correct answer from a group of 4 or 5 possible answers the students are engaged in a critical thinking activity where they will need to consider all givens as possibilities. Also by sorting the expressions the students are able to more clearly see patterns contained within factors of polynomials.

When I did this activity in my own classroom I had the students work in cooperative groups where they could discuss their findings with each other.
