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
