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!

How to Divide Polynomials with Long Division

2. 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

3. 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!

Operations with Polynomials in Several Variables

4. 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.

Factoring Polynomial Expressions

5. Factoring Polynomial Expressions

When it comes to factoring polynomials, there are several methods to choose from depending on what kind of polynomial you are looking at. Watch this video lesson to learn how to identify and use the appropriate method.
