The teacher explains the many steps in simplifying a rational expression using opposite binomial factors. At first it seems complicated but if you follow along and watch out for your negative numbers you can learn how to simplify this polynomial divided by a polynomial.
In this factoring binomials activity, learners examine problems containing the difference of squares.  They factor binomial equations.  This one-page activity contains 15 problems.  Answers are provided.
Using Wolframalpha graphing capabilites, algebra learners graph polynomials with degrees of three and larger. They identify the roots and graph each polynomial, predict zeros and shapes of graphs, and validate their understanding through graphing. 
Students use algebra tiles to identify the binomial factors and the graphing calculator to verify the result. In addition, they will identify the x-intercepts and y-intercepts of each trinomial function and explore relationships between the trinomial x2 + bx + c and its factored form (x + m)(x + n).
Students factor polynomials representing the difference of squares, perfect square trinomials, and the sum and difference of two cubes. They identify and factor binomials that are the differences of squares when given examples.
Ninth graders factor trinomial expressions. In this trinomial lesson plan, 9th graders use the given trinomial form to factor expressions. Students use algebra tiles to identify the binomial factors and a graphing calculator to verify the results. Students also identify the x-intercepts and y-intercepts of each trinomial function and explore its relationships.
In this factoring worksheet, students find the GCF of monomials, they factor binomials and trinomials. This two-page worksheet contains 25 multi-step problems.
Here is a TI-Navigator™ activity that allows students to review the concept of factoring and solving quadratic binomials, including a connection to graphical solutions. They enter a number such as -2 using the minus key and not the negative (-) key (due to the inability of the number fields to support more than one possible answer).
So you are looking for all the possible binomial factors of a trinomial expression? First find the factors of the coefficients. Then set up a table or template to do a guess and check. Write out, using the template, all the possible combinations.
Learners factor polynomials using the sum and difference of cubes. They also learn connections between the graph and expression.
Learners factor trinomials using patterns and their TI to graph their results and make predictions through this lesson. This is accomplished by solving quadratic equations through FOIL and algebra tiles.
For this factoring worksheet, students determine the greatest common factor. They factor binomials and use the zero-product property to simplify equations. This three-page worksheet contains 27 problems.
In this algebra worksheet, 11th graders factor monomials and polynomials. They solve quadratic equations involving binomials and trinomials. There are 6 questions on this worksheet.
In this multiplying and factoring polynomials worksheet, students solve 25 short answer problems.  Students FOIL binomials, expand binomials, factor perfect square trinomials, etc.
Students solve proofs dealing with the coordinate plane. In this geometry lesson, students verify properties of triangles and quadrilaterals.
In this factoring worksheet, students factor monomials and trinomials. Answers are provided, on the worksheet, below each section of exercises. This worksheet contains two pages.
In this solving quadratic equations learning exercise, students solve 60 multiple choice and short answer problems. Students complete the square, factor, multiply, and solve quadratic equations.
Ninth graders investigate multiplication of binomials and factoring of trinomials.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders compare and contrast expansion and factoring using algebra tiles and a TI-89.
Students factor binomials and apply it. In this algebra lesson, students use patterns to factor difference of squares and FOIL to factor other binomials. They apply the concept of binomials to vertical multiplication.
Students examine the difference of squares equation, and multiply binomials using the FOIL method. They complete the Case of the Missing Middle Term worksheet.
