I think long division of numbers is something a lot of students probably students struggle with, so i think it's still worth explaining how to do it.
I could maybe split the advice into two columns, one column showing the steps of dividing the polynomial with remainders and the other column showing the equivalent steps in long division form like you mentioned in the meeting on Tuesday but i'm not really sure how to do that.

Saved a checkpoint:
Can we assume that the students have already seen long division of numbers?
I've rewritten the statement a bit.
"We then repeat these same steps with the new polynomial until we are only left with an integer. " isn't strictly true - the remainder is a polynomial of lower degree than the divisor.
I reckon the statement text is better off in the advice.
The advice is quite lengthy, but I don't know if it's possible to do any better.

- I think the advice for the division should be reformulated, and focused more on being the algebraic long division with some narration. I think there should be a long division illustration of each bit of narration after it is said, and then you end up with the full one at the end. I also think the narration could be a little clearer in places. You have mentioned that you are dividing the first term of the polynomial by x, but haven't explicitly stated that that is because the first term of the divisor is x. Someone might be misled to think that dividing by x is always the first step to do, which it is not.
- The question is quite short, would you maybe think about adding a second part where the divisor is a quadratic or something to make it a little harder?
- Would you want to include a statement? You could state what a polynomial is, or give a definition of algebraic long division or something.
- Good grammar, I can't pick you up on anything to do with that, well done haha!!
There is only one version of this question.

Error in variable testing condition
There's an error in the condition you specified in the Variable testing tab. Variable values can't be generated until it's fixed.
No parts have been defined in this question.

Test that the marking algorithm works
Check that the marking algorithm works with different sets of variables and student answers using the interface below.
Create unit tests to save expected results and to document how the algorithm should work.
There's an error which means the marking algorithm can't run:
Click on a note's name to show or hide it. Only shown notes will be included when you create a unit test.
No unit tests have been defined. Enter an answer above, select one or more notes, and click the "Create a unit test" button.
The following tests check that the question is behaving as desired.
This test has not been run yet This test produces the expected output This test does not produce the expected output
This test is not currently producing the expected result. Fix the marking algorithm to produce the expected results detailed below or, if this test is out of date, update the test to accept the current values.
One or more notes in this test are no longer defined. If these notes are no longer needed, you should delete this test.

In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
|Variable||Answer to use||Must be answered?|
The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
