Factoring with Symbols

Factoring with Symbols - using symbols instead of numbers to help students see the factoring patterns  |  mrseteachesmath.blogspot.com

I’m starting factoring this week with my Algebra 2 Honors students.  

I really like using this worksheet to reinforce the fact that factoring is all about patterns.  My students always think it’s impossible at first.  I do one or two problems with them, and they finish it quickly.  This worksheet is not my creation.  I think it’s been around in various forms for a long time.  However, it works well for my students, so I hope it will help yours!

For some reason, the symbols look strange before you download.  However, download the file anyway and it should be fine then.
