Factoring in the Algebra 2 Classroom



@Math_Educators I am looking for anyone that has created a Formative on Factoring for Algebra 2 or has some creative ideas for teaching Factoring.



Hey Megan,
I don’t know of anything YET, but I’ll be looking because I actually start Alg2 with a factoring review!! :slight_smile:Michelle


I have created factoring binomials and trinomials Formatives. Is this what you are looking for? If not, my colleague taught A2 last year and she may have some formatives that she could share.


Yes. That is exactly what I am looking for. I would love for anything anyone is willing to share!


Original Formatives:
LT 24 Factoring Binomials
Clone Code: TYHSZT or https://goformative.com/clone/TYHSZT

LT 25 Factoring Trinomials a=1
Clone Code: CACDJJ or https://goformative.com/clone/CACDJJ

LT 26 Factoring Trinomials a NOT 1
Clone Code: VUBGEA or https://goformative.com/clone/VUBGEA

Folders with each concept ‘building’ I’m working on for this year. Some may not be finished yet.
MT 21: Factor Binomials
Clone Code: JQEPBR or https://goformative.com/clone/JQEPBR

MT 22: Factor Trinomials
Clone Code: EQPZQU or https://goformative.com/clone/EQPZQU

Hope you can find something you can use/tweak to fit your needs. The hardest part about these types of problems is typing in ‘all’ possible variations for how a student might enter their answer. I always warn my students that they may find another way to enter the answer that I haven’t thought of yet, so if their problem is ‘red’ I will double check it. AND I always make it a point to announce with a student has found another way to enter the answer and that I’ve updated problem ___; students who have a red ___ should refresh their screens to see if their answer matches.
