Random Factoring Practice Applet (a is prime)

Teachers! Make your own! Use the INPUT LINE and enter these one at a time. a = RandomBetween[-10,10] b = RandomBetween[-10,10] c = RandomElement[ {1, 2, 3, 5, 7} ] (this will be the leading coefficient...prime 80% or the time) Simplify[ (c x-a)(x-b) ] (this is what you will factor) show = true Factor[ f(x) ] (this is the answer, factored completely! Set “Condition to Show Object” to show) Add two BUTTONS: New Problem and Check Factors script for New Problem button UpdateConstruction[] show:false script for Check Factors button show:true
