Polynomial Division and the Benefits of Online Tutoring
A precalculus student recently asked me if we could work on polynomial division.
“Of course!” I said. “Long division or synthetic division?”
She replied, “Oh, we’re learning the reverse tabular method. Can we do that?”
The reverse tabular method? I had never heard of this, but with a quick google search I learned a new method of dividing polynomials, which I want to share with you all today!
This is something I love about online tutoring: access to the internet provides so many resources. These are helpful in many scenarios, and especially when students bring some of that “new math” that is being taught in schools today. I’m able to quickly see examples of what they are talking about and teach what they are learning in school.
And let me know what topic you’d like for me to cover in my next video! I’m always looking for recommendations.
