This graphic organizer will help students completely solve a higher order polynomial equation. The chart includes factoring patterns for difference of squares, sum and difference of cubes, quadratic form, and trinomials with a=1 and a not equal to 1. When an equation is not factorable by these methods students solve by guessing and testing possible rational roots. Then they use synthetic division to reduce the polynomial. This flow chart is a great summary page for a polynomial unit in Algebra 2.
Package includes a PDF version (ideal for printing) and an editable .docx file to modify for your own classes. Equation objects require MathType to edit.
