Mathematics 8 Quarter 1– Module 1A Factoring Polynomials

This module is designed and written to help you factor polynomials completely using different techniques. In all lessons, you are given the opportunity to use your prior knowledge and skills in multiplying and dividing polynomials. Activities are also given to process your knowledge and skills acquired, deepen and transfer your understanding of the different lessons. The scope of this module enables you to use it in many different learning situations. The lessons are arranged to follow the standard sequence of the course. But the order in which you read them can be changed to correspond with the textbook you are now using.

This module contains the following lessons:

  • Lesson 1: Factoring with common monomial factor
  • Lesson 2: Factoring difference of two squares
  • Lesson 3: Factoring the Sum and Difference of Two Cubes

After going through this module, you are expected to:

1. determine patterns in factoring polynomials;

2. factor polynomials completely and accurately using the greatest common monomial factor (GCMF);

3. factor the difference of two squares; and

4. factor the sum and difference of two cubes.
