Factoring the GCF then a = 1

Factoring the GCF then a = 1

Standards Addressed:

  • MGSE9-12.A.SSE.3 – Factoring the GCF

  • MGSE9-12.A.REI.4b– Factoring Quadratic Equations

Learning Targets:

  • I can identify and calculate the greatest common factor (GCF) of a polynomial.

  • I can factor a polynomial when a = 1

Success Criteria:

  • I can identify factors.

  • I can multiply binomials

  • I can factor a quadratic expression. 

Daily 10

  • 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.

Assessment Strategy:

  • 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.
