    • Bundle Description
    • StandardsNEW

    This unit and activities bundle builds on students' knowledge of factoring quadratic expressions by introducing factoring polynomials of degree 3 and 4 using the following methods: grouping, sum and difference of cubes, quadratic form, and difference of squares.

    Polynomial operations including adding, subtracting, and multiplying polynomials is also covered. Students will use these techniques to prove polynomial identities. Students will use Pascal's triangle and the Binomial Theorem to expand expressions of the form (a + b)^n.

    Finally, students will divide polynomials of degree 3 and 4 by linear and quadratic polynomials using polynomial long division and synthetic division.

    Most resources are non-editable .pdf format.

    Editable assessments are included for easy customization to your students' needs!

    Editable versions of the mid-unit assessment and test are included in .docx format for MS Word.

    EACH LESSON CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING ELEMENTS:

    All resources are in PDF format. Check out the preview for a detailed look!

    • The Lesson Notes are designed for use as a note-taking guide combined with guided practice.

    • Practice A and Practice B are suitable for use as in-class practice and homework. Two comparable forms are included for increased versatility.

    • The Exit Ticket is designed for a quick concept check at the end of the class period.

    • The Warm-Up is designed for next-day use to reinforce the previous dayโ€™s learning.

    • One-page display versions of the exit ticket and warm-up are included. Display the PDF page on a screen for student viewing and have students record their responses on notebook paper or scratch paper to save on printing.

    ADDITIONAL RESOURCES EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE IN UNIT 2 INCLUDE:

    • 2 Concept Organizers offer complimentary alternatives for note-taking or post-lesson concept reinforcement.

    • The Mid-Unit Review (Forms A and B) provides an opportunity for students to practice the concepts they learned in the first part of the unit.

    • The Mid-Unit Assessment (Forms A and B) may be used as a test, quiz, or daily assignment to meet the specific needs of your students. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.

    • The Unit Review (Forms A and B) helps students focus on the key concepts studied throughout the unit.

    • The Unit Test (Forms A, B, and C) comes in two comparable multiple-choice forms (A and B) and one free-response form (C). The test key includes TEKS alignment for each question to facilitate easy data analysis. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.

    STANDARDS:

    A.SSE.2, A.APR.1, A.APR.2, A.APR.4, A.APR.5, A.APR.6 from the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

    A note from Allison about standards alignment: This resource was designed to provide ready-to-implement resources for teachers to use to facilitate their studentsโ€™ mastery of the Common Core State Standards. A considerable effort has been made to ensure the standards are addressed thoroughly, but these resources will reflect my understanding of the standards. As always, continue to use your professional judgment and experience when lesson planning.

    Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write ๐˜ข(๐˜น)/๐˜ฃ(๐˜น) in the form ๐˜ฒ(๐˜น) + ๐˜ณ(๐˜น)/๐˜ฃ(๐˜น), where ๐˜ข(๐˜น), ๐˜ฃ(๐˜น), ๐˜ฒ(๐˜น), and ๐˜ณ(๐˜น) are polynomials with the degree of ๐˜ณ(๐˜น) less than the degree of ๐˜ฃ(๐˜น), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.
    Know and apply the Binomial Theorem for the expansion of (๐˜น + ๐˜บ)โฟ in powers of ๐˜น and y for a positive integer ๐˜ฏ, where ๐˜น and ๐˜บ are any numbers, with coefficients determined for example by Pascalโ€™s Triangle.
    Prove polynomial identities and use them to describe numerical relationships. For example, the polynomial identity (๐˜นยฒ + ๐˜บยฒ)ยฒ = (๐˜นยฒ โ€“ ๐˜บยฒ)ยฒ + (2๐˜น๐˜บ)ยฒ can be used to generate Pythagorean triples.
    Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial ๐˜ฑ(๐˜น) and a number ๐˜ข, the remainder on division by ๐˜น โ€“ ๐˜ข is ๐˜ฑ(๐˜ข), so ๐˜ฑ(๐˜ข) = 0 if and only if (๐˜น โ€“ ๐˜ข) is a factor of ๐˜ฑ(๐˜น).
    Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.
