Lesson PurposeThe purpose of this lesson is for students to understand that the rules for factoring polynomials involve the simultaenous satisfaction of a very specific addition and multiplication calculation by using specific parts of the polynomial. This calculation is able to give the inverse result of a multiplication problem, and has direct application to may geometry questions. Finally, factoring a polynomial involves higherorder thinking skills that are helpful and analagous to the type of thinking required int he real world in order to solve complex problems involving more than one variable; particularly in the cases where recursive reasoning is necessary.
