It is *assumed* that
factoring has been introduced in class. In order to factor the students know at this point what **Monomials, Bimomials, and Trinomials** are.

**Name Number
of Terms Example**

**Monomial 1 3x ^{2}**

**Binomial 2 3x ^{2 }+ 4x^{}**

**Trinomial 3 3x ^{2 }+ 4x + 2**

Now is the time that a review of adding and subtracting polynomials is appropriate.

The
students may not look at this as a review *but* at this point in Algebra it is assumed that they have
been working with combining like terms, as well as the familiarity of the
Properties:

**Commutative Property of Addition**

** Associative
Property of Addition**

** Distributive
Property**

** Multiplication
of Ð1**

*Note: This
may not be a review as the students seem to think that each new lesson is
completely new.*
