There is a P3Assignmentto be completed and handed infor correction prior to writing the P 4-5 test. The P3 Assignment gives a hands on/ visual approach to factoring polynomials. INTRODUCTIONThe study of polynomials is not just adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing polynomial expressions. It also includes a process known as factoring. This unit will be the start of your study of factoring polynomials. OUTCOMESUpon completion of this unit a student will be able to: 1. Demonstrate symbolically an understanding of (a) common factors (b) factoring polynomials by grouping(c) factoring trinomials by decomposition (d) factoring perfect squaretrinomials (e) factoring a difference of squaresIf you have any questions or difficulties, please ask for assistance in the Math Resource Center.
