Factoring review

April 10, 2019

we have been doing a lot of work on factoring and expanding….connecting trinomials to their binomial factors is a good challenge! Here we have sticks with a trinomial on one end and some factors on the other end.

Our goal is to connect all the equivalent expressions. Some went about multiplying the factors, and others factored the trinomials…

This activity has a few “tricky” (very similar) expressions, and an extra trick that one stick does not belong! This is easy for teachers to know who has just joined up all the sticks to be “done” first….or who has actually finished the activity because 9 sticks form a ring, with one left out.
