Students are given 24 trinomial cards (a=1), all with the solutions on the back of each card. Students work in groups where one student begins as the 'group expert'. He picks one of the cards and shows the trinomial to the rest of the group while only he can see the worked out solution. As the group members work on factoring the trinomial, the group expert is checking their work and offering assistance as needed (referring to the solution as he needs to). Once all group members have successfully factored the trinomial, another student in the group becomes the 'group expert'.
