Lesson Plan: Prime Polynomials Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to verify whether a quadratic expression is prime.


Students will be able to

  • recall that a prime polynomial is a polynomial with integer coefficients that cannot be factored into polynomials of lower degrees with integer coefficients,
  • determine whether a quadratic expression is prime or not,
    • demonstrate that a quadratic expression is not prime by finding its factors.


Students should already be familiar with

  • factoring quadratic expressions.


Students will not cover

  • cubic or higher-degree polynomials,
  • irreducibility.
