This curriculum project was designed in response to the shift to the New York State Next Generation Standards to help teachers implement the updated standards for factoring in grades 7-12. These standards depend on spiraling curricula, but this aspect is often lost in implementation. This curriculum project provides units on factoring spanning grades 7, 8 (Pre-Algebra), Algebra I and Algebra II. This project has an emphasis on Mathematics Practice Standards 7 and 8.
