CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.APR.B.2 - Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x - a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x - a) is a factor of p(x).

- Arithmetic with Polynomials - Worksheet 2 - 10 problems are presented in a PDF worksheet to test the student's knowledge of knowing and applying the remainder theorem.
- Arithmetic with Polynomials - Worksheet 2 - Answer Key - An answer key is provided in PDF form showing answers for the PDF worksheet that tests the student's knowledge of knowing and applying the remainder theorem.
- Know and Apply the Remainder Theorem - Before introducing remainders of polynomials to your students, be sure they remember what a remainder is. For example, tell them to divide 13 by 4. Most of them will give you the answer 3.25. Instead, backtrack a few years of schooling and tell them to write their answer as "3 remainder 1." Explain to them that polynomials act the same way.
