Lesson Plan: Solving Quadratic and Quadratic-Like Equations by Factoring Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to solve quadratic and quadratic-like equations using factoring along with questions that involve quadratics at some point in the factorization.


Students will be able to

  • solve a prefactored equation,
  • solve simple quadratic equations by factoring,
  • solve quadratic equations by factoring,
  • solve other equations that involve factoring quadratics or taking the GCF as part of the solution,
  • solve word problems and real-world problems that require factoring as a method for finding a solution,
  • solve quadratic-like equations by factoring.


Students should already be familiar with

  • factoring quadratics and trinomials, including perfect square trinomials and the difference of two squares,
  • factoring by completing the square,
  • writing algebraic expressions.


Students will not cover

  • solving equations that do not require factoring,
  • equations with more than one variable,
  • square roots of rational numbers.
