Polynomials, Odd and Even Functions - Text Tutoring
Recall that the degree of a polynomial equation is simply the largest power in the equation. For example, has a degree of 3, because its highest power is 3, as seen in the term. Similarly, has a degree of 1. Polynomials with odd-numbered (1, 3, 5…) powers follow similar patterns: Note that the . . . → Read More: Polynomials, Odd and Even Functions
Distributive Property Scavenger Hunt Game
My students love these scavenger hunts. I have never seen them so actively engaged and excited about the distributive property. It is self-checking and allowed me to work 1-on-1 with students who needed remediation. Awesome!
