Factoring the GCF then a = 1
- Factoring the GCF then a = 1
MGSE9-12.A.SSE.3 – Factoring the GCF
MGSE9-12.A.REI.4b– Factoring Quadratic Equations
I can identify and calculate the greatest common factor (GCF) of a polynomial.
I can factor a polynomial when a = 1
I can identify factors.
I can multiply binomials
I can factor a quadratic expression.
Opening (I do) : Teacher will review notes on GCF and factoring a quadratic when a = 1. Teacher will work example problems and review GCF and multiplying polynomials.
Work Session (we do - you do) : Student will work to complete GCF factoring, Factoring trinomials worksheet
Closing (we check): Students will check work with others in class.
Scaffolding throughout lesson and applications will be provided for rigor.
Teacher will use effective questioning throughout class. Students will pair-share questions solutions on given assignments. Observation throughout class will be performed by the teacher.
Summarizer: We will discuss what we are actually finding when we factor, we are finding the points where the graph crosses the x axis.
