    Polynomials Project

    Polynomials Project

    Overview

    This is designed to be used as an assessment at the end of a unit on Polynomials. Studets are given requirements for the project but have the choice of using PowerPoint, Google Slides, Flipgrid, etc to represent their work.

    This was originally designed by Reed Bowman, Autumn Patterson, and Kori Elliott

    This project is a summary activity of student content knowledge on Polynomials. Students will complete the project over the course of 5 consecutive classes.

    This is a polynomails project designed for the end of the Unit. Students are given requirements but have the freedom to use flipgrid, PowerPoint, Google Slides , etc.

    Part 1 - Definitions and key terms

    Studebnts will define and provide examples of Six terms reviewed during the unit:

     

    Monomial

    Binomial

    Trinomial

    Polynomial

    Greatest Common Factor

    Quadratic Trinomial

    Standard form

    Part 2 - Methods

    Studnets will explain and identify each of the following methods for solving problems involving polynomials

     

    FOIL Method

    Box Method

    Factoring Method

    Part 3 - Multiplication of polynomials

    Students will provide an example of and solution for each type of problem

    1.Multiply monomial by monomial
    2.Multiply monomial by trinomial
    3.Multiply two Binomials
    4.Multiply a binomial and a trinomial
    5.Multiply a trinomial and trinomial

    Part 4 - Factoring of polynomials

    Students will provide an example of and solution for each type of problem

    1.Factor out a GCF only and cannot be factored further
    2.Factor a trinomial with a=1
    3.Factor a trinomial with a>1 and no GCF
    4.Factor a trinomial with a>1 after you pull out a GCF
    5.Factor a trinomial where a=1 AFTER you pull out a GCF

    Part 5 - Special types of problems

    Students will provide an example of and solution for each

    1.Difference of two squares
    2.Perfect Square Trinomial
