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!
