Quadratic Factoring, The BEST Handout Ever, plus practice HW.Students have so much trouble with factoring trinomials, especially those whose leading coefficient is not one. I see it all the way up through Calculus. I have seen crazy methods and videos, which act like a Band-Aid: temporarily helping, but students forget these methods since they are not built on common algebraic steps.
Evolution of Math Understanding: A Student’s Perspective
