This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS A.10E:
factor, if possible, trinomials with real factors in the form ax2 + bx + c, including perfect square trinomials of degree two
Students learn to use the diamond method to factor a trinomial into two binomials (where a, the leading coefficient, is greater than one).
Between 2016 and 2023 (including redesign practice), this readiness standard has been tested 22 times on the STAAR test. Videos explaining the problems can be found below.
