This is a great activity for practice on Reverse FOIL (Quadratic Factoring) with a = 1 that gets the students up and working cooperatively to enhance their skills. This works well as practice after notes, review for a test, or review prior to solving quadratic functions.
Students will complete 24 Reverse FOIL problems to complete the entire scavenger hunt circuit. I group students in pairs, but if you have a small class, individuals can also work by themselves.
Students will start on a particular letter and complete the problem on the TOP of the sheet. When an answer is achieved, students will look for that answer on the BOTTOM of the other sheets. Once the answer is found, students will proceed to that sheet and complete their new problem on the TOP of that sheet. Students will progress through the scavenger hunt as described until they reach their starting letter.
*A directions sheet, answer sheet, and student work sheet are including for easy implementation and grading!
