  • Wednesday 

    • The topic for today is factoring trinomials. There are a lot of ways to show this, some teachers use the X-method, the AC test method, the box method, or just guess and check. I usually start you out with the X-method and later most students start to just guess and check. 

 

    • I would like for you to watch the video on Google Classroom and take notes as you go, pause and rewind if you need to. 

The concept is to simply take a trinomial and factor it into two binomials. IT IS THE REVERSE OF MULTIPLYING TWO BINOMIALS TOGETHER.  We will spend several days on this topic.
