### The New AC Method to factor trinomials

Factoring trinomials is a main subject of high school math. The AC Method has been so far the most popular one to factor trinomials. However, this method can be considerably improved if we apply the Rule of Sign into its solving approach.The improved method, called by the author of this article,"The New AC Method for factoring trinomials" proceeds faster and avoids the lengthy factoring by grouping.The strong points of this new method are: simple, fast, no guessing, systematic, no factoring by…See More

### The Transposing Method for solving linear equations

There are some differences between the US basic solving process for algebra equations and inequalities and the world wide one. We teach students to solve equations by observing the principle of balancing the two sides of an equation. The common saying is likely:"Do the same thing to the right side what you did to the left side". On the contrary, the world wide solving process performs by transposing terms from one side to another, while always keeping the equation balanced. The likely saying…See More

# Math Limerick

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?

( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 92 + 0 .

Answer:

A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.

---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)

Presentation Suggestions:
Challenge students to invent their own math limerick!

The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.
