### polynomial division

This page is a summary of resources from this blog about polynomial division using the grid method, also known as the "generic rectangle" method, or "reverse tabular" method.

If you would like to see some worked out examples, this page will randomly generate them. You decide if you want examples with remainders or not. A blog post about this tool is here.

This will hit you with a randomly generated polynomial division question and prompt you to solve it by filling in the grid, one step at a time. There is a blog post about it here.

Dividing Polynomials using Grids
There are a couple of blog posts on how to divide polynomials using grids, including this one and this one. I hope that the calculator and example generators mentioned above show enough information for you to understand the method, but if you are still uncertain, these posts might help.

Multiplying Polynomials using Grids
Using tables in the 'forward' direction, for multiplication, is described here. The symmetry of using grids for both multiplication and division is part of the appeal when using the grid method for dividing polynomials (rather than traditional long division).

Playing around with Polynomial Grid Division
If you are willing to keep going forever, you can divide the indivisible using the 'backwards-reverse' method.
