Ch 55: 6th-8th Grade Algebra: Monomials & Polynomials

The chapter teaches 6th-8th grade students about monomials and polynomials as well as how to complete mathematical functions with monomials and polynomials. After your student has watched the video lessons, they are given lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to assess their mastery of the material.

6th-8th Grade Algebra: Monomials & Polynomials - Chapter Summary

In this chapter for 6th through 8th grade algebra students, video lessons teach how to define monomials and polynomials, how to complete basic mathematical operations as well as more complex problems (e.g. finding roots, working with several variables, graphing and more) with monomials and polynomials. These 10-minute-or-less videos include example problems to work through and lesson quizzes to fortify what students learn. Once students have finished the video lessons, they may take a chapter exam to assess what they learned.
