Choosing a Factoring Method
Heading 4/23/2017 Choosing a Factoring Method Today we will factor out the GCF first, and then factor the remaining quadratic expression. Students apply basic factoring techniques to second-and simple third-degree polynomials. These techniques include finding a common factor for all terms in a polynomial, recognizing the difference of two squares, and recognizing perfect squares of binomials.

Notes Steps for Factoring a Quadratic Equation
1) Factor out the GCF (if possible) 2) Set up the Magic X. ac goes on top, and b goes on bottom Find the pair that multiplies to equal the top, and adds up to equal the bottom. 3) Set up the Magic T. Put ax on the top two, and the pair we found for the bottom two. Treat each side as a fraction and reduce if possible 4) You now have your factors.

Notes Factor. Ex. 1) Factor out GCF. 2) Magic X.
- What pair multiplies to equal top and adds to equal the bottom? 3) Magic T. - Reduce? 4) You now have your factors.
