This unit will take 3 days to guide students through the flipcharts. The fourth day will be a quiz and review. The fifth day will be another quiz and more review. The sixth day will be an assessment. th On the 4 day, see Factoring Sort.pdf for ideas about how to use the cards. Also spend some time using Activity Center so that students are held accountable for practicing factoring. There are several Jeopardy Powerpoints in your folder: Factoring_Jeopardy.ppt, FactoringJeopardy.ppt, and an html link to one that students can play online. Use as needed. Use Review in Class.flp with your class as you see fit. It is an extra flipchart with multiple choice practice. Use Activity Center throughout these lessons.
