**CLASSIFYING POLYNOMIALS**by: GLORIA KENT**Today’s Objectives:**• Classify a polynomial by it’s degree. • Classify a polynomial by it’s number of terms • “Name” a polynomial by it’s “first and last names” determined by it’s degree and number of terms.**Degree of a Polynomial**The degree of a polynomial is calculated by finding the largest exponent in the polynomial. (Learned in previous lesson on Writing Polynomials in Standard Form)**POLYNOMIAL**3z4 + 5z3 – 7 15a + 25 185 2c10 – 7c6 + 4c3 - 9 2f3 – 7f2 + 1 15y2 9g4 – 3g + 5 10r5 –7r 16n7 + 6n4 – 3n2 DEGREE NAME Quartic Linear Constant Tenth degree Cubic Quadratic Quartic Quintic Seventh degree Let’s practice classifying polynomials by “degree”. The degree name becomes the “first name” of the polynomial.
