And was curious... What about teaching how to find the factors of something like this: ax**3+ bx**2 y + cxy**2 + dy**3 ** mean to the power of Since I'm studying computer science and it's hard to get her to practice, I was curious if any of you know any interesting/good computer programs in the area of prealgebra (and pregeometry). She has problems with knowing when to simplify her answers when solving 2 equations. Any suggestions? (This isn't trinomials anymore, but that is part of what she has to learn. And the 2nd answer is a method that wouldn't work for her because she would leave it in the fractions.) Thanks, Carolyn Oates
