You will be able to write a polynomial in standard form, identify the degree and classification of the polynomial. Monomial: A number 5 a variable x the product of a number and one or more variables. 3x Polynomials A polynomial a monomial, or the sum and/or difference of monomials A term is part of an algebraic expression separated by addition or subtraction signs. A term is a monomial!! Coefficient: A number in front of the variable in the expression NOT a Polynomial Variable in the denominator / Variable with a negative exponent Variable in the exponent Variable under a radical Binomial A polynomial with exactly two terms using addition or subtraction. Trinomial A polynomial with exactly three terms using addition and subtraction. The expression 4x +3x + 5 is a trinomial because it has three terms. Degree of a monomial: the sum of the exponents of the variable. Degree of a polynomial: 1.Find the degree of each term 2.Pick the largest one Standard form: When the terms of a polynomial are arranged from the largest exponent to the smallest exponent in decreasing order. This is a 0 degree polynomial. We called this a constant. A constant has no variable. This is a 1 st degree polynomial. 1 st degree polynomials are linear. This is a 2 nd degree polynomial. 2 nd degree polynomials are quadratic. This is a 3 rd degree polynomial. 3 rd degree polynomials are cubic. This is a 4 th degree polynomial. 4 th degree polynomials are quartic. This is a 5 th degree polynomial. 5 th degree polynomials are quintic.

Write the polynomials in standard form. Write the polynomials in standard form and identify the polynomial by degree and number of terms This is a 3 rd degree, or cubic, trinomial. This is a 2 nd degree, or quadratic, trinomial.
