# Factoring the GCF of a Polynomial

## Intro to Factoring

Check out this video... it goes over what we will be covering over the next couple of weeks... Just promise me that you will not start doing the Dougie... yes, I'm talking to you... you know who you are!

## Check out this guy from MyTutorZone

He is going to show you what we will be focused on today... factoring the GCF from 2 or more terms. We are going to continue to use the box method. I will show you later in class how to use the box. For now, just try to get a handle on some of the key points in this video.

## Step by Step info on GCF

Here's another example that has some step by step tips on how to factor the GCF from a polynomial. Feel free to write the steps down on some copy paper if you want. Otherwise, we will do some notes later in class. Click on the box below for the video.

## Finding the GCF using the Graphing Calculator

Here's a great video that shows you have to find the GCF (coefficient)... that's right, you can use a calculator to do some of this!!!!
