This graphic organizer was made to help my students solve quadratic equations by factoring, finding the solutions, and checking their answer. It was made to help them see the process, understand the big picture of solving by factoring and scaffold them to remembering the process.
The organizer has 3 problems and provides a workspace for finding the factors using factors and sums, for writing the binomials, for setting each binomial equal to zero, solving the equations, and for checking the solutions by substituting the answers back into the original quadratic equation and seeing if they are correct.
The organizer is also provided as a blank template so that other problems may be used with it.
The organizer could be completed during interactive lecture.
