This PowerPoint presentation includes 25 slides with 12 animated examples of adding polynomials. The animations are extremely helpful in demonstrating to students the process of adding polynomials. There is even a color changing effect to highlight like terms. While most of the samples are demonstrating adding and subtracting polynomials there are also examples of classifying polynomials by degree and number of terms. Students will also have the opportunity to write polynomials in Standard Form.
1. Student Notes Handout - this provides students the opportunity to follow along with the presentation (NOT a PowerPoint slide Handout).
2. Student Practice Handout - this handout is a great way to provide students the opportunity to practice their new skill. This practice handout includes 20 problems, similar to those covered in the presentation.
