Factoring Trinomials Review Puzzle-
This is an activity that I use during my Algebra 1 class when we are reviewing factoring trinomials. The students are given the product as a trinomial, and they must factor them to then match them up with the factors (binomials) on a seperate sheet of paper. They must cut them out and paste them on the front sheet to complete the circle of the trinomial, and its two factors.
This puzzle has 8 individual questions where students must factor 4 trinomials with a lead coefficient of 1 (where a=1), and then 4 others where the lead coefficient is greater than 1 (where a>1).
After they factor them on the worksheet and show their work by hand, there is a column for them to check their work.
The last sheet is a sheet with 16 factors that they have to match up with their product on the main sheet.
Please download this to preview, it is a really fun activity that the kids enjoy. It could be done individually or with partners.
It also includes an answer key!
