This activity is designed to take place AFTER students have already learned to divide polynomials using the following three methods:
- Long Division
- Synthetic Division
- Grid (or Lattice/Box) Method
This Jigsaw Activity explores all three of the methods and helps students identify patterns, helpful tricks, and shortcuts for each of the three methods. This will help them further understand the methods and be successful in using them.
This is also designed to be a jigsaw activity where students will become "experts" in one of the methods, and then teach what they have discovered to their classmates.
