This lesson is a 20-slide presentation that teaches classifying, adding, and subtracting polynomials. The lesson begins with several slides on monomials, including determining the degree of a monomial as I finds that helps my students immensely. The lesson provides practice for writing polynomials in standard form, classifying polynomials by degree and number of terms as well as adding and subtracting polynomials. The slides go through all of the steps in the examples one step at a time. I create my PowerPoints to where a sub could go through the lesson if it was necessary. There are two additional slides for students to practice adding and then subtracting polynomials where the intention is to leave the slide up, allow students to work, and then the answers are on the next slide. The worksheet included has 22 problems for your students to practice writing polynomials in standard form, classifying polynomials by degree and number of terms, and adding and subtracting polynomials. There are also a few word problems to ensure students understand polynomials as they will be working with them for years to come. The worksheet would make an excellent quiz, or homework assignment.
