The #PowerMath classes and I were taken with the videos done by Westerville South High School in Westerville, Ohio. Especially the polynomial factoring one called “Teach Me How to Factor.”

The students asked that I put together some optional homework for them on the videos. No sense in watching something that fun and not getting to practice it!

Check out the video. Below it, there’s a free downloadable collection of “homework” problems that match each of the polynomial factoring examples in the video.

And right below that, parents and teachers can get the teacher cheat sheet I created to get a whole bunch of fairly easy polynomial factoring examples.

Get the free downloads here:

- “Teach Me How to Factor” Practice Worksheet
- Polynomial factoring TEACHER CHEAT SHEETS
- Polynomial multiplication TEACHER CHEAT SHEETS

What do you think about the video? Can you use the worksheet and cheat sheets for teaching polynomial factoring? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Yes. This lesson is hot! lol And, it will definitely resonate with students and the rhythm that’s playing in their head any way. The use of popular music and combination of math facts/patterns is genius.

I tell my students K-college that math is all about patterns. Look, compare, and share.

Keep these great posts coming BON!

**I learned the Dougie during our Back to School Skating Party… (very similar to the dance they are doing). Kids these days. We must meet them where they are in order to reach them.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Toni!

The Dougie – awesome! I remember doing the pony! (Of course that was because it was making a comeback in the 80s.)

“Look, compare, and share.” <- that's good!

Looks good, and hopefully the sheet is even better.

I like to think it is, Dorothy. 🙂
