Unit F Concept 1 Part 1

This video reviews the process of polynomial long division. There are several key things we must remember. First, our equations must be in standard form and placeholders must be put if any terms are missing. Second, our answer is written out with variables and if there is a remainder, it is written over the divisor attached to the rest of the answer.

While polynomial long division is just reviewed in Unit F, it will be essential in Unit G, so make sure to review it well!

Unit F Concept 2 Part 1

This video review synthetic division, which is a process that will be used for the rest of this unit. Synthetic division has certain requirements that the divisor must meet in order for it to work (otherwise you must use long division!). In addition, it is important to make sure to write your answer as a one-degree reduced polynomial with variables (the correct variable!!) in the end.
