Product Description
Add some zip to your factoring unit with this activity!

Problem Trails (scavenger hunts) are fun for kids because they get to move around the room. They are great for teachers, too, because students are polishing their math skills!

This ten question problem trail for algebra students breaks factoring into two steps. Students will identify the proper factoring pattern for each expression, then use that pattern to factor it.

I wanted to prevent students from being able to look at the answer choices and work backwards to complete the problem trail. This would allow them to avoid the actual factoring. Therefore, I designed the activity so that students identify the factoring pattern as they move from question to question. Then, they will complete the actual factoring as seat work knowing that the "outline" for factoring each expression is correct.
