Factoring out Greatest Common Factors (GCF) from Polynomials

In my classroom, I found that some of my students needed more practice finding greatest common factors of polynomials and also, figuring out what was left when they were factored out.

I made this activity as a more interesting way for the students demonstrate their understanding of this topic and also to check their work themselves.

The students are presented with 8 different polynomials: 2 binomials, 4 trinomials, and 2 polynomials with 4 terms. They are to factor the problem completely in the first column (showing their work), and then use the second and third column to find the parts of their answers.

I liked that my students were able to fix many of their mistakes(mostly with exponents) during this activity when they saw that their answers were not choices in the second and third columns.

I hope your students benefit from this as much as mine did!
