Ch 25: CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Polynomials

About This Chapter

Our study guide for the CUNY Assessment Test in Math includes a chapter on operations with polynomials, theorems related to polynomials and polynomial graphs. Use these videos, quizzes and other study tools to prepare for test questions on polynomials.

CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Polynomials - Chapter Summary

In this chapter's lessons, you'll get a solid review of operations with polynomials, the remainder theorem and synthetic division among other topics. Our videos can help you prepare for CUNY Assessment Test in Math questions on topics including:

  • How to add, subtract and multiply polynomials
  • Ways to evaluate a polynomial in several variables
  • Long division and synthetic division with polynomials
  • The factor and remainder theorems
  • How to find rational zeros
  • Fundamental theorem of algebra
  • Basic transformation of polynomial graphs
  • The binomial theorem

Our instructors guide you through lively lessons that emphasize what you'll need to know on the exam. Short lesson quizzes and a chapter test enable you to assess your knowledge, and the quiz questions can be printed out and used for offline study.

CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Polynomials Chapter Objectives

CUNY requires its new students to take the Assessment Test in Math exam to determine if they need remedial work or can be enrolled in a regular or advanced math class. The test has four sections, and questions on polynomials are in the algebra section.

The test consists of multiple-choice questions and is computer delivered. Taking the lesson quizzes in this chapter can acquaint you with answering questions in this format. The quizzes also show you where you may need additional study prior to test day.

How to Add, Subtract and Multiply Polynomials

1. How to Add, Subtract and Multiply Polynomials

Adding, subtracting and multiplying polynomials are, basically, the same as adding, subtracting and multiplying numbers. They only difference is that we have a pesky variable to worry about, but this video will show you that's no problem, so no worries! This method has worked for many of my students, and I think it will work for you, too!

Operations with Polynomials in Several Variables

2. Operations with Polynomials in Several Variables

In this video lesson, you will learn how to handle and work with polynomials that have more than one variable. This is important because in math you sometimes have to work with several variables at the same time.

How to Divide Polynomials with Long Division

3. How to Divide Polynomials with Long Division

Arithmetic long division and polynomial long division are very similar. Yes, it's a long process, but once you have the rhythm you will get every problem correct!

How to Use Synthetic Division to Divide Polynomials

4. How to Use Synthetic Division to Divide Polynomials

Synthetic division is a 'short-cut' way of dividing a polynomial by a monomial. You still need to know long division, sorry, but this method is way fun when you're dividing by a monomial!

Remainder Theorem & Factor Theorem: Definition & Examples

5. Remainder Theorem & Factor Theorem: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn about the remainder theorem and the factor theorem. You will also learn how to use these theorems to find remainders and factors of polynomials.

Finding Rational Zeros Using the Rational Zeros Theorem & Synthetic Division

6. Finding Rational Zeros Using the Rational Zeros Theorem & Synthetic Division

After completing this lesson, you will know what the rational zeros theorem says. You will also know how to apply this theorem to find zeros of polynomial functions.

Fundamental Theorem of Algebra: Explanation and Example

7. Fundamental Theorem of Algebra: Explanation and Example

In this lesson, you will learn what the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra says. You will also learn how to apply this theorem in determining solutions of polynomial functions.

Understanding Basic Polynomial Graphs

8. Understanding Basic Polynomial Graphs

This lesson will cover understanding basic polynomial graphs. The lesson focuses on how exponents and leading coefficients alter the behavior of the graphs.

Basic Transformations of Polynomial Graphs

9. Basic Transformations of Polynomial Graphs

The basic transformations for a graph are movement up and down, left and right, pinched or stretched graphs, and flipped graphs. This lesson will review how to accomplish each of these transformations.

The Binomial Theorem: Defining Expressions

10. The Binomial Theorem: Defining Expressions

In this lesson, students will learn the binomial theorem and get practice using the theorem to expand binomial expressions. The theorem is broken down into its parts and then reconstructed.
