## Synthetic Division of Polynomials

We started by looking at long division and synthetic division of polynomials. Long division was familiar, synthetic division was new. Synthetic division can be faster and less written work, but is …

## Fractional Exponents, Logarithms, Quartic and Cubic Equations

We started by looking at some current homework which involved factoring. For most of the problems they started with a quartic or cubic equation and then factored into a quadratic and one or two other …
