Color this Polynomial Simplified A visualization method for simplifying expressions. A GEMS Submission/ALEX Submitted by: E. Thompson, PhD. Summer 2008

2
Why this method works: Helps organize like terms Eliminates overlooking a term Keeps everything from running together Can be used on a problem with any level of difficultyCan be used on a problem with any level of difficulty Can be re-visited with solving equations

3
Use color to change the way you visualize the problem: 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Original Problem 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Find all xs 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Find all ys 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Find all x 2 -4x +6y +2x 2 - Combine like terms +2x 2 -4x +6y – Highest power in front Final Answer: 2x 2 -4x +6y

4
The simple process Go through the problem and highlight things that are alike.

5
Variation with shapes: (Colors not required) 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Original Problem 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Find all xs 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Find all ys 2x – 3y +2x 2 – 6x +9y - Find all x 2 -4x +6y +2x 2 - Combine like terms +2x 2 -4x +6y – Highest power in front Final Answer: 2x 2 -4x +6y

6
Increased Difficulty 2(x – y)+ 2y-3x +x 2 y Original Problem 2(x – y)+ 2y -3x +x 2 y Remove Parenthesis 2x –2y + 2y -3x +x 2 y Group with color -x + 0y +x 2 y Simplify -x +x 2 y Regroup x 2 y -x Final Answer Continue with class samples and individual practice.
