Polynomial Puzzles 3: Multiplying and Factoring Polynomials

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Expressions

Big Idea:This lesson will help students to see that multiplying and factoring trinomials are inverse operations

Multiply and Divide Monomials-Jigsaw day 1 of 2

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Expressions

Big Idea:A jigsaw activity helps students to learn about multiplying and dividing polynomials through cooperation and sharing.

Adding and Subtracting Monomials

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Expressions

Big Idea:This lesson uses a pre-assessment to determine student's understanding. The work is then differentiated based on student need.

Proving Polynomial Identities

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Theorems and Graphs

Big Idea:There are links between polynomials and geometry. Both branches of math use proof and a polynomial identity can be used to generate Pythagorean triples.

Finding Roots of All Sorts

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Quadratic Functions

Big Idea:In this fast-paced lesson, students are introduced to as many ideas as they can handle, while also being given space to make their own sense of those ideas.

Operations with Polynomials Day 1 of 2

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomials

Big Idea:Students get the opportunity to explore and make conclusions about operations with polynomials using graphing technology.

Review of Polynomial Roots and Complex Numbers

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Theorems and Graphs

Big Idea:Arithmetic with polynomials and complex numbers are performed in similar ways, but powers of i have a meaning distinct from powers of variables.

The Remainder Theorem

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Theorems and Graphs

Big Idea:Any polynomial p(x) can be written as a product of (x â a) and some quotient q(x), plus the remainder p(a).
