Product Description
I use this is the fourth of four worksheets for teaching my Algebra students how to factor trinomials. This worksheet has some perfect squares, and some that require factoring out a GCF first.

I use an area model or generic rectangle to teach them how to factor, a technique I've found very powerful.

For an example of what I mean by an area model, please hover over thumbnail 2: you'll notice that the products of the diagonals are equal.

If the students know that the two products must be equal, it really helps them with figuring out the two factors that add up to the sum of the "middle" term.

I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.

The file includes spiral review problems.

This worksheet is intended for students to show their work on a separate sheet of paper.

Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
