### Series IIIb Description: What's Contained in this Series

This series is a continuation of Series IIIa.

Series IIIa and IIIb give you the power to be able to factor and solve polynomials of any degree. Factoring techniques included in this series are: the Difference of Squares, Complex Trinomial Factoring (4-step method), Quadratic Formula including The Discriminant, and Synthetic Division.

In addition to the above, we also do an in-depth discussion of The Division Statement, Polynomial Long Division, look at the graphical meaning of factoring polynomials, use Let Statements and Substitution to factor polynomial and non-polynomial functions, and discuss The Remainder and The Factor Theorems.

Extras included in this series are a look at Why Math is Important and two tips on how to improve your study habits.

Full list and links for all the videos contained in the series are provided below and are available at: Table of Contents: The Language of Mathematics - Series IIIb.

See Videos Available for Download for information on the torrent for this series.
