Help your students visualize the process for solving quadratic equations by factoring. This flowchart works for ANY
equation involving quadratic trinomials
or a difference of squares
in one variable. Students are able to easily lead themselves or others through a problem, when using this graphic organizer. This flowchart is built to handle everything from the easiest of factoring problems, to the nastiest.
UPDATED 12/30/17 to include an additional factoring method!
This product now offers TWO
options of factoring methods: (1) Slide, Divide, Bottoms, Up
and (2) Factoring by Grouping (NEW!).
This original version of this product uses the "Slide, Divide, Bottoms Up" method for factoring when a
> 1 and we can't get rid of a
by factoring out the GCF, alone. If you are unfamiliar with this method, first, know that it's awesome, and second, read more about it here
. This product has been updated to include a second method for solving by factoring: factoring by grouping. This method is great because not only does it work for any factorable quadratic trinomial, it works for all factorable binomials, too!
Three versions are included for each factoring method: full-sheet and half-sheet sizes, as well as (my favorite!) a booklet version. The half-sheet and booklet versions are both designed to fit perfectly into any interactive notebook!
Three Versions Included:
*Full-sheet size, 1 per full page of paper.
*Half-Sheet Size (2 per page--cut in half and glue into interactive notebooks!)
*Booklet - The booklet fits 3 flowcharts, and is my favorite version to use in interactive notebooks!
I have really loved laminating a class set of the full sheet size so students can work on the flowchart template with a dry erase marker.
Always have your printer set to "FIT" or "SHRINK OVERSIZED PAGES!" Printers vary with the margins that they use, so this will ensure that all TPT products look their best!
Note to buyers:
Due to the nature of the topic, this flowchart shares many common elements with the Factoring Quadratic Trinomials flowchart
, but has been updated to reflect the changes that occur when solving, rather than simplify factoring.
Flowcharts have been left blank for increased flexibility. Pictures in the preview file show how you can utilize the flowchart with ANY problem.
