Polynomials

What’s the difference between a monomial and a polynomial? (Hint: Check the prefix!) In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will guide you through a quick lesson on what makes a polynomial a polynomial. You’ll learn how to figure out the number of monomials in a polynomial, and what to do about variables and exponents. Tim will show you how to calculate the degree of a polynomial, too! You’ll also see how to determine the degree of a polynomial with variables, but no exponents. And in case you thought this stuff was only good in math class, Tim uses a polynomial expression to figure out a real-world problem!

## Algebra Lesson Plan: Create a Linear Equations Poster

In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 4-8, students use BrainPOP resources to practice applying knowledge of distance, rate, and time to real-world problem solving. Students will also graph linear equations, demonstrate knowledge of slope and intercept, and solve two step equations. See more »

## Math Skills Lesson Plan: It’s All Fun and Games

In this lesson plan which is adaptable for grades 3-12, students work collaboratively to research selected math skills. Students then create, play, and assess a math game that is designed to apply and reinforce their selected math concept.
