...Factor the expression: x^2-x-6. -6 can be considered as a product of 2 and -3 and gives us conclusion that -x can be written as a sum of -3x and 2x. So, our expression has this form now: x^2-3x+2x-3*2=x*(x-3)+2*(x-3)=(x+2)*(x-3). So, our quadratic equation looks like this: (x+2)*(x-3)=0. This will be equal to zero only if: x+2=0 or x-3=0.

I took a course on Discrete Mathematics as part of my distributed minor when pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Sciences. During my teaching career I've taught an equivalent course, Computational Mathematics, several times. I've also covered some of the topics of this subject within other courses, such as Network Flows, Calculus and Scientific Computing.
