Students are guided to use prime factors to determine the GCF; factor polynomials using GCF; factor 4-term polynomial expressions using GCF and Grouping; and factor and solve 4-term polynomial equations using GCF, Grouping, and the Zero Product Property.
This packet will guide students through the process of learning to factor. They will:
~ Use prime factor trees and a chart to guide them through the process of determining the Greatest Common Monomial Factor of a polynomial and then factoring the polynomial.
~ Factor out the monomial or binomial GCF from polynomial expressions.
~ Factor the monomial GCF from an equation and solve using the Zero Product Property.
~ Factor 4-term expressions using GCF and Grouping.
~ Factor 4-term equations using GCF and Grouping, and solve using the Zero Product Property.
The packet includes 10 pages of problems, 4 pages of answer/solution sheets, and 3 pages of information and the cover.
