I created this step-by-step guide (somewhat like a graphic organizer) to help students learn to factor quadratics by decomposition. Once students use this guide a few times, they can complete the process without the guide, thereby using the guide as a scaffold to learning. The guide is provided in this product in two forms. In one form, the guide is provided as a full page step-by-step with no example. The other form has side-by-side guides, one showing an example. This product was created by Susan M. Walker.
