Students will be able to apply the factoring/dividing out method to limits that result in indeterminate form when direct substitution is used.

Students will be able to factor all types of polynomials, including those using special patterns such as the difference of squares, sum and difference of cubes, and dealing with complex fractions.

WATCH - By the end of this lesson, students will be able to complete the following problems from the SSS packet individually. Page 17 # 8,9,13,14,15

SUMMARY - By the end of this lesson, students will be able to answer the following questions:

1. What is the factoring/dividing out method?

2. When do you use the factoring/dividing out method?

3. If you can’t find the factors of something when trying to use the factoring/dividing out method, what can you try to do?

QUESTION - By the end of this lesson, students will be able to ask a Higher-Order Thinking question regarding the content covered.

Tutorial

In this video, learn how to evaluate limits algebraically using the method of factoring/dividing out. Learn what indeterminate form is and what to do when you get it.
