Learning Goal: Develop procedural fluency with multiplying polynomials.




  • Common Core
    • HSA.APR.D.7 – Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.
  • TEKS
    • A.10(B) – multiply polynomials of degree one and degree two
    • A.10(D) – rewrite polynomial expressions of degree one and degree two in equivalent forms using the distributive property
    • A.10(F) – decide if a binomial can be written as the difference of two squares and, if possible, use the structure of a difference of two squares to rewrite the binomial
