From basic to the most advanced you will explore 14 different examples on how to apply the difference of two squares.
The difference of two squares is a very helpful factoring technique that will make solving quadratics easier when a quadratic takes a paticular form. This course will take you a couple of hours to complete but is designed to be used over a couple of days to reinforce your skills. The course is broken down to three different sections.
In the introduction you will be able to identify the form for difference of two squares and how we can factor to solve. We will also explore tips and tricks to use when you are working through different examples
Those different examples will be provided for you in the example section where you will have basic examples to ones including fractions large square numbers. Each tutorial is accompianed with helpful hints as well as a step by step tutorial for you to check your answer.
The conclusion of the course will explore essential questions, challenge problems, as well as summarize common mistakes and the process in factoring using the difference of two squares.
As a technique alone, factoring by the difference of two squares can save you a lot of time an stress as you work to solve quadratics.
