8th Grade Math - Adding Polynomials

| No Comments | 1 TrackBack

In today's free 8th grade math video, we are diving into the world of polynomials with Professor Edward Burger. In case you forgot, a polynomial is a mathematical expression involving a sum of powers in one or more variables multiplied by coefficients. Today's video is on the subject of adding polynomials. We can add polynomials together by simply taking two polynomials and combining the like terms. The secret is to use the associative property and the commutative property to rearrange things so you can combine like terms.

Sounds complicated, right? But it's not nearly as bad as it sounds. We've got a total of 3 lectures for you today that will demonstrate how to add polynomials. You'll also have the opportunity to run through a few examples to give you a solid understanding of today's subject. Just don't forget to click on the forward button directly to the left of the time stamp to move to the next lecture on the video. Watch them all and you'll be adding polynomials like a pro!
