In this Algebra I lesson on factoring to solve equations, the teacher demonstrates how to factor an equation, specifically one with an a squared term and an a to the first power, using the zero product property. Through factoring, the teacher shows how to break down the equation into the product of two binomials and solve for the solutions using simple algebraic equations. The lesson ends with the explanation of the zero product property and the importance of finding both solutions.
