## Factoring Polynomials

## Video/Activity Description

## Johnny's Math Project - Johnny attends Washington High where he has the toughest math teacher in the entire school, Ms. Jacobson. Johnny has been given a factoring project and he has no idea how to compete the task. Help Johnny and his group categorize a variety of factoring problems. Working in groups of 2 or 3 you will have to first create a map of all the methods of factoring. Once the mapping is complete you will be given a variety of problems to factor. Factor each problem then place your solutions on a sticky note. You and your group members will need to decide where to place each sticky note on the map. This is a great activity for your students to visually see the different methods of factoring and have in-depth conversation about which methods to use to factor each problem.
