Math 9 - Polynomials

Math 9 - Polynomials

Author: Sara Thibeault
Description:

- Explore polynomials

- Perform operations with polynomials

- Relate real-life situations with polynomial expressions

In this packet, we will learn about the language of mathematics, the terms and definitions associated with polynomials (and algebra), and explore number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) on polynomials.

Please be advised: I have copies of the in-class assignments for you each day. Save a tree (and time/money) by not printing them off.

Polynomials - Algebraic Definitions

Tomorrow, we will be using the definitions to identify different parts of polynomials as well as different types of polynomials. Just as we said today that it is important to be able to "speak math," we need to build our vocabulary with polynomials so we too can 'talk the talk.'

Lesson 2 - Terms and Definitions Worksheet

Here is the worksheet for tomorrow's class on terms and definitions.
