Today's lesson (pdf) was exploring area models to model multiplying polynomials.
Your homework for Thursday is:
- Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment.
- Complete #1d and #2b and c from today's worksheet lesson (pdf).
- Watch the Multiplying Polynomials video.
- Work some practice problems from this page and this page (a few from both). Write them down in your notebook.
How many problems? That's up to you. Do enough until you feel comfortable you've mastered multiplying polynomials.
Note: You do not need to type anything on the website. Simple click the "Give me a problem" button. It will give you a problem. Write it down, work it out on paper in your notebook, then click "What's the answer?" to check it. Repeat as many times as you need to until you've mastered the concept.
Note 2: They indicate exponents with the ^ character. So x2 is written as x^2.
