I want my students to use vocabulary so they become comfortable with it and will hopefully remember it!
This power point leads partners through identifying the degree and number of terms in different polynomials. Then they have to read a sentence and fill in some blanks to actually name it. The partners take turns identifying the leading coefficient and constant term of each polynomial. I had my students stand in two lines. One line was always Person A. The other line was always Person B. The lines rotated so each round the student pairs changed (just like speed dating!)
Vocabulary words covered include: monomial, binomial, trinomial, polynomial, constant, leading coefficient, constant, linear, quadratic, cubic, quartic, quintic
