Using synthetic division to identify zeroes of polynomials
This lesson uses synthetic division to divide polynomials and find zeros.
Shows you an example of how to perform algebraic long division.
Shows you an example of how to divide polynomials with remainders (long division with polynomials).
Shows a step-by-step solution to an example of synthetic division.
Write the function in the form f(x)=(x-k)q(x)+r for the given value of k
Use the remainder theorem and synthetic division to find the value of the function
Verify the given factors of the function and find the remaining factors of the function
Strengthen ability to analyze word meaning and symbolic or mathematical notation from context and introduce students to unfamiliar vocabulary or notation. Further solidify understanding by defining new vocabulary words and notation as well as generating personal examples of words, concepts, and notation usage.
