#### Learning objectives

Using manipulatives, the student will factor trinomials in the form of *a*x^{2} + *b*x + *c* with real linear binomial factors.
#### Real world application

This lab helps the student investigate factoring trinomials using manipulatives in order to better understand the mathematical process.

Tile Bank

The trinomial is prime and cannot be factored. Please adjust the values.

The trinomial can be factored, but will not fit on the grid. Please adjust the values.

Drag tiles from the bank into the grid that represent the multiplication of the two binomials.
