This graphic organizer can be used as a review guide before a test or it could also be used instead of notes; students actually prefer this type of note taking format.
The topics included in these notes are the following:
Review of multiplication of binomials
Factoring a trinomial of the form y=ax^2+bx+c where a=1
Factoring out the greatest common factor out of a trinomial
Factoring a trinomial of the form y=ax^2+bx+c where is not 1
Factoring perfect square trinomials
Factoring difference of squares
I hope this organizer is helpful to you and your students; I would love to hear back from you and see how it helped you.
