Today's lesson (pdf) was reviewing GCF and then learning about factoring by grouping.
Your homework for Thursday is:
- Prepare for the Adding and Subtracting Polynomials Assessment on Thursday. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment.
- Watch the Factoring Polynomials by Grouping video.
- Do some more factoring by grouping practice.
