# Ch 16: PLACE Mathematics: Polynomials

As you prepare for the PLACE Mathematics exam, watch these lesson videos on polynomials. Learn how to complete mathematical operations with polynomials and review the functions and theorems vital to understanding how to work with polynomials.

## PLACE Mathematics: Polynomials - Chapter Summary

When preparing for the Program for Licensing Assessments for Colorado Educators (PLACE) Mathematics, it could be helpful to review the functions of polynomials in mathematics. In this chapter, expert instructors explain how to solve mathematical operations with polynomials and discuss synthetic division, related mathematical theorems and polynomial graphs. After watching this series of lesson videos, you should have a better understanding of:

• Addition, subtraction and multiplication with polynomials
• Solving problems with polynomials in several variables
• Long and synthetic division with polynomials
• Remainder Theorem, Factor Theorem and Rational Zeros Theorem
• The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra
• Graphing polynomials and transformations of polynomial graphs
• The Binomial Theorem

In addition to watching these video lessons, you can take quizzes to help you determine what topics you still need to review before taking the PLACE Mathematics. You can also print out lesson worksheets for further study. To simplify your review, use the jump feature in the video timelines to go to key topics in the lessons, or if you want another way of learning the material, read over the lesson transcripts.
