In this video lesson we will be reviewing factoring and specifically using a decision tree to decide what type of factoring is needed in any given situation. We will be discussing:
Greatest Common Factor
Difference of 2 Squares
Sum and Difference of 2 Cubes
Trinomials with a leading coefficient of 1
Trinomials with a leading coefficient other than 1
Factoring by grouping
We will be going through 10 examples and students and teachers are encouraged to pause the video to attempt the factoring problems themselves and we will review them in the video together.
