Welcome to a major bridge between Algebra 1 and Algebra 2! This chapter begins with an introduction to what monomials and polynomials are and how to name them. You will then learn to add and subtract polynomials like a pro. From there you will master how to multiply polynomials, starting with the product of a monomial and a polynomial before rocking the FOIL method to multiply two binomials. A nice lesson on polynomial word problems follows and then it is off to factoring out greatest common factors (GCFs). The chapter ends with the all-important lessons on factoring polynomials employing the “reverse FOIL”, “guess and check”, and factoring by grouping techniques. Awe yeah!!! This chapter is pure math awesomeness!!!
