7.5: Factor 'Difference of Squares' Expressions
11.0:Students apply basic factoring techniques to second-and simple third-degree polynomials. These techniques include finding a common factor for all terms in a polynomial, recognizing the difference of two squares, and recognizing perfect squares of binomials.
12.0: Students simplify fractions with polynomials in the numerator and denominator by factoring both and reducing them to the lowest terms.
13.0:Students add,subtract, multiply, and divide retional expressions and functions. Students solve both computationally and conceptually challenging problems by using these techniques.
Students will be able to recognize and factor the difference of squares.
