Dividing polynomials with remainders

This digital resource is a video demonstration of algebraic long division of a cubic polynomial by a quadratic. The single example is presented in step-by-step detail using a pen-and-paper technique. The audio commentary reinforces the use of mathematical language and notation associated with algebraic division, quotients ...
