This video shows you how to factor polynomials such as binomials and trinomials by removing the greatest common factor, using the ac method, substitution, and so much more. This video contains plenty of shortcut, tips, and tricks that will help you to pass your algebra class regardless if you're taking algebra 1, 2, or college algebra. This video contains tons of practice problems and examples showing you how to factor the easy way and to do it fast.

Here is a list of topics contain in this video:

1. Factor each polynomial completely by using the GCF or greatest common factor:

7x+21y, 8x^2y+12xy^2, 36x^3y^2-60x^4y^3

2. Factoring polynomials - difference of perfect squares

x^2-25, y^2-64, 8x^2-18, 81x^2-36y^2, 200x^4-288y^6

3. How to factor trinomials when the leading coefficient is 1 - x^2+bx+c

x^2+11x+30, x^2+2x-15, x^2-2x-48, x^2-9x+20

4. Factoring trinomials using trial and error

2x^2-5x-3

5. Factoring 3rd degree polynomials using the AC method - quadratic form - ax^2+bx+c

3x^2+5x-2, 6x^2-7x-3

6. Factoring polynomials by substitution including negative coefficients and exponents:

x^4+7x^2+12, -2x^6+6x^3+56, x^-2+13x^-1+40

7. How to factor cubic polynomials using sum and difference of perfect cubes

x^3+8, y^3-125, 27x^3+64y^6

8. Factoring polynomials expressions with 4 terms by grouping

x^3+2x2-5x-10 & 4x^3-8x^2+3x-6

9. Factoring polynomials using sum of perfect of squares (radicals)

x^2-4, x^2+4, x^2+9, x^2-3, x^2+3

10. Factoring higher degree polynomials using synthetic division and writing the answer as a product of linear factors

x^3-2x^2-5x+6 and x^4+2x^3+x^2+8x-12

11. Factoring trinomials by completing the square

x^2+6x+7, x^2-4x+12, x^2-3x+1, 2x^2+6x-9

12. Factoring advanced functions containing multiple variables

x^2-2xy+y2-9, x^2y^2-y^2-z^2+x^z^2, 5x^3+4x^2y^2+15x+12y^2

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
