Task The product of this project is a slide show. Each student has to create his/her slideshow about factoring. Each and every one student has to find problems with factoring a binomial, the difference of two perfect squares, a trinomial with a is not 1 and a is 1. The students have to describe what factoring method they use for every problem. In addition, they have to explain why they decide to use a particular method. Then, they have to factor a problem describing every step. As an example of explanation , they night use Cornell note from their notebooks. For each problem with explanation, description of all steps, and factoring , students have to use as least one slide.
Presentation All slideshow must be sent to Blog via Slideshare. Instruction on how to upload slideshows onto Blog Is on Blog page. Also, a hard copy of the presentation must be given to me for an evaluation.
