132. Using the Binomial Theorem
...atorics, i.e., choose notation involving factorials. Students apply their understanding of the use of the Binomial Theorem by finding solutions to practical applications. Estimated Duration: Four hours Commentary: This lesson requires that students have previous experience with and understanding of polynomial multiplication and combinations. The lesson supports inquiry learning and enhances critical thinking skills. This lesson is based on formulas for the binomial theorem that connect the number of b's in any term of (a + b) n to the coefficient. Some versions of the binomial theorem connect the number of a's in...

133. Factoring Trinomials
...ext form of factoring which is the trinomial method. The teacher will pull out the yellow boxes and highlight the number that they are to multiply and add to. The students will discover that there is exactly one combination of two numbers that multiply to the "c" term and add to the "b" term of the polynomial. These two numbers will be written in the form of two factors. On the next slide the students will see their first example. Again the teacher (or a student) can highlight the multiply and add numbers. The teacher will ask the students for factors of eight and create a list with all of the factor pairs. Then t...

134. Rational Expressions: Simplifying
...tudents will be able to find the values that make the denominator of a rational expression undefined. Students will be able to simplify rational expressions. Description Through the use of Microsoft PowerPoint, worksheets and an interactive math lab practice site, the topic of rational expressions (polynomials in the form of fractions) will be introduced. The focus of this lesson is on simplifying rational expressions. This should be used after students have already learned how to add, subtract and multiply polynomials.

...slopeintercept form? You can graph it. That graph contains all of your answers to what x and y equal. Today we are going to learn how to solve linear equations using graphical and algebraic methods, and whether or not they even have a solution and how many they have. But before we can move on from polynomials and area and perimeter, we have to go over a few last things. D. PROCEDURE 1. TTW hand back all the tests and other grades that have not yet been returned. TTW explain the grading procedure for select questions from Friday's exam, and explain to the students what the teacher wants to see in a full, correct a...
