The Best Way to Factor Trinomials – Screencasts

Part II has been added. See below

I am learning to use screencasting software and here is my first effort.  I now know that I am more glib in my head than in reality and that I need to work on getting a good microphone.

Warning to all beginning algebra students:  The answers you get using this method will not be the same as those in your text nor what your math instructor expects to see, but they will be correct and more useful.  You will also get them faster.

I am a sixty-five year old math instructor at Southern Oregon University. I taught at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed California for twenty-six years. Prior to that I worked as a computer programmer, carpenter and in various other jobs. I graduated from Rice University in 1967 and have a MS in Operations Research from Stanford. In the past I have hand-built a stone house and taken long solo bicycle tours. Now I ride my mountain bike and play golf for recreation.
