Algebra II Module 1, Topic B, Overview

Math equation

This topic focuses on factoring polynomials and the advantages of factored form of a polynomial to both solve equations and sketch graphs of polynomial functions.  Students solve problems involving real world situations and develop fluency with creating equations and functions given a verbal description, visual representation or graph.  This topic concludes with a discussion of polynomial division with remainder, further strengthening the connection between the remainder, the factors and zeros of a polynomial equation, and graphs of polynomial functions.
