In this comprehensive worksheet and tutorial, algebra learners review factoring in a number of different ways. It reviews factoring out a common monomial, trinomials including those that have a leading coefficient that is not one, difference of squares, sum and difference of cubes, and four-terms. Explanations and fully worked examples are provided.
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).
In this trinomials worksheet, 9th graders solve 10 different problems that include factoring various types of trinomials. First, they set up a product of two parentheses where each will hold two terms. Then, students determine the factors that go in the first positions. In addition, they determine which factors go into the last positions and solve.
