Intro to Polynomials in Two Variables (Example)

How do you organize polynomials? The presenter in a short video shows how to find the degree and coefficient of the terms of a polynomial that contains more than one variable. Scholars use that information to find the leading coefficient and degree of the entire polynomial.

Instructional Ideas

  • Provide several polynomials and ask the class to determine the degree of each term and the degree of the polynomial
Classroom Considerations

  • Assumes pupils understand the concepts of exponents
  • Learners should have a complete understanding of integers

  • Uses a highlighter to emphasize parts of the polynomial
  • Writes in the understood one for exponents and coefficients that are not there

  • None
