Factoring Quadratics Foldable

I created this factoring quadratics foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks.

Factoring Quadratics Foldable

I had to make a lot of compromises with this topic that made me sad. But, I just didn’t have the time I usually have for this topic.

This was mainly due to losing a large amount of class time due to the Oklahoma teacher walk-out.

Factoring Quadratics Foldable

Oklahoma standards only require Algebra 1 students to factor quadratics with a leading coefficient of 1. Usually, I go above and beyond the standards and have students factor quadratics with other leading coefficients.

This means that students really need to use the box method.

This year, I only did what the standards required due to time constraints. This meant that students didn’t really see the benefit of using the box method/grid method to factor quadratics.

I personally think it’s a mistake to set up the standards this way, but I’m not the one in charge.
