Intro to Polynomials in One Variable (Example)

Organize all the polynomials. The short video covers how to find the coefficient and degree of each of the terms of a polynomial. Using that information, pupils learn how to determine the leading coefficient and the degree of a polynomial along with how to write it in descending order.

Instructional Ideas

  • Incorporate a polynomial in a context and ask the class to interpret the terms within that context
  • Provide problems to the class to have them determine the leading coefficient and degree without finding the coefficients and degree of each term
Classroom Considerations

  • Assumes learners understand exponents

  • Uses colors to highlight what the video references
  • Explains the exponents for the constant term

  • None
