Ashford 6: - Week 5 - Discussion 1

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.

Factoring

Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:

• On pages 345-6 and 353 of Elementary and      Intermediate Algebra, there are many factoring problems. You will find      your assignment in the following table.

If   the 3rd letter of your last name is

• For the problems on page 345-6, factor the polynomials      using whatever strategy seems appropriate. State what methods you will use      and then demonstrate the methods on your problems, explaining the process      as you go. Discuss any particular challenges those particular polynomials      posed for the factoring.

• For the problem on page 353 make sure you use the “ac      method” regardless of what the book’s directions say. Show the steps of      this method in your work in a similar manner as how the book shows it in      examples.

• Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words      into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your      writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately      in sentences describing your math work.):
• Factor
• GCF
• Prime factors
• Perfect square
• Grouping

Your initial post should be 150-250 words in length. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Make sure you choose people who don’t have the same numbers as you worked.  Do you agree with how they used the vocabulary?  Is their example of polynomial multiplication suitable as a comparison?

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your discussion.
