*Lesson 7.7: Factoring ax*^{2} + bx + c (when a = 1)

^{2}+ bx + c (when a = 1)

*Factoring a polynomial involves writing it as a product of 2 or more polynomials.*

*It reverses the process of polynomial multiplication*

**Lesson Tool**: Big Ideas Algebra I Math textbook

**Lesson Goal**: I can factor a trinomial of the form ax^{2} + *bx* + *c (when a = 1) as a product of two binomials by using the sum-product pattern*

*Read the Key Idea: Factoring x ^{2} + bx + c When c is Positive (page 370)*

*Read Example 1: Factoring x ^{2} + bx + c When b and c are Positive (page 370)*

*Please do problems 3- 9 (all) (page 373)*

*Read Example 2: Factoring x ^{2} + bx + c When b is Negative and c is Positive (page 371)*

*Please do problems 10 – 18 (all) (page 373)*

*Read the Key Idea: Factoring x ^{2} + bx + c When c is Negative (page 371)*

*Read Example 3: Factoring x ^{2} + bx + c When c is Negative (page 371)*
