In this lesson on multiplying polynomials, students learn how to use the box method to multiply a polynomial by a polynomial. By creating a box with the terms of each polynomial on the sides, students can easily keep track of all the multiplications and add the like terms together to get the final answer. The teacher demonstrates this method with two examples, and also shows how it can be used with binomials.
Part 3 of Multiplying Polynomials covers how to multiply a polynomial by a polynomial using the box method.
