### About this unit

In Mathematics II, students rewrote (factored) quadratic expressions as the product of two linear factors. This helped them learn about the behavior of quadratic functions. In Mathematics III, we extend this idea to rewrite polynomials in degrees higher than 2 as products of linear factors. This will help us investigate polynomial functions. It also allows us to prove polynomial identities, which are mathematical statements that describe numerical relationships.
