Classroom Activities


Whole Group:  Print and take notes on Factoring Polynomials with Division (show remainder theorem) with this page: Dividing Polynomials by Binomial .   From home, watch the video of teacher going over the notes at this link: https://youtu.be/_ylUlFA-dxw   https://youtu.be/_ylUlFA-dxw

Independent Work:  HW12 Dividing Polynomials


Whole group:  Students watch Polynomial Remainder Theorem Video which shows how to divide polynomials with long division at this link:       https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra2/x2ec2f6f830c9fb89:poly-div/x2ec2f6f830c9fb89:remainder-theorem/v/polynomial-remainder-theorem.

Group work: Teacher will provide a paper for “Dividing Polynomials Practice” with 4 problems for a grade.

Independent: Students will work problem on Khan Academy after video.  Khan Academy Algebra 2-Remainder Theorem Practice  due on Thursday for 1st and 3rd, due on Friday for 6th, 7th, and 8th.
