Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Algebra - Ch. 10 - Polynomials and Factoring

Learning Targets: 
Add and subtract Polynomials
Multiply 2 polys using the Distributive Properties and the FOIL method
Use patterns for the product of a sum and difference and for the square of a binomial
Factor polys (Diff. of 2 squares and perfect square trinomials)
