Here are some websites that might help clarify polynomial operations and factoring.

Polynomial addition and subtraction - http://math.about.com/library/blpoly.htm

Subtracting polynomials - http://www.regentsprep.org/rEGENTS/math/polyadd/sp_subt.htm

Multiplying polynomials - http://www.purplemath.com/modules/polymult.htm and http://www.jamesbrennan.org/algebra/polynomials/multiplication_of_polynomials.htm

Factoring polynomials - http://www.jamesbrennan.org/algebra/polynomials/factoring_polynomials.htm and http://www.purplemath.com/modules/simpfact.htm

In order for my students to earn extra credit, they must visit at least 2 of the sites and comment on both.
