Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on factoring practice, students learn how to factor trinomials with a coefficient greater than one by creating a diamond and identifying two numbers that add up to the middle term coefficient but multiply to the constant term coefficient. The teacher provides two methods to factor the trinomials: factor by group or the box method. Through practice, students can master these techniques and confidently factor trinomials.

Lesson Description:

Factoring practice - Learn how to factor

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
