Students will practice factoring polynomials with this set of Mystery Number Activities. Types of factoring includes difference of squares, sum of cubes, difference of cubes, trinomials of the form ax² + bx + c where a ≥ 1, trinomials of the ax4 + bx² + c where a ≥ 1, and factoring polynomials with four terms. This set contains versions 11-15 and is created for an Algebra 2 level class. Versions 13-15 contain a GCF.

Students completely factor the polynomials in each row. If done correctly, there is a common binomial factor in each row. They record this common binomial, then use the common binomials to create a mystery expression that will reveal a mystery number at the end.

**This also works very well as a partner activity! **One partner completes the first column, and the other partner completes the second column. They can compare answers to identify the common binomials.

**Versions 1-10 (for Algebra 1) can be found here**.
