Classifying Polynomials by Term and Degree

We learned how to classify polynomials by number of terms. Vocabulary includes monomial, binomial, trinomial and polynomial. We then learned how to classify polynomials by degree (0 to n, and by name, including constant, linear, quadratic, cubic, and quartic). Students were introduced to the standard form for writing polynomials (in order of degree).

Students received expanded grade slip information (handwritten slips attached to the printed grade. For one day only, students turning in late work will receive reduced credit, which will only help buoy up grades. This offer ends at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28th.

Tonight's Homework: Lesson 10.1 ( 7 -12, 49 - 60, FCO ). Try a couple of problems using the vertical format and then a couple more using the horizontal format.
