These flashcards were created so that students can learn the definitions of some basic terms concerning polynomials. The students can learn the terms on their own or with a partner.
The vocabulary terms included are:
Degree of Term
Degree of Polynomial
The cards may be printed on copy paper. Each set of cards in a row is a front and back of a flashcard, so the rows may be cut apart, folded in the middle and glued or stapled together. There are other possibilities, such as printing on card stock with a little manipulation.
One way to use the cards is to have students quiz each other for about 10 minutes using the cards, and, afterward the students could be given a quiz or independent work to determine how well they know the definitions.
The cards could also be used as a card sort. Students could work independently, pairs, or groups, and match the terms to the definitions.
The product could be an activity at a math center.
