Background Tutorials

Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.

Factors are a fundamental part of algebra, so it would be a great idea to know all about them. This tutorial can help! Take a look!

Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.

If you learn about algebra, then you'll see polynomials everywhere! In this tutorial, you'll learn the definition of a polynomial and see some of the common names for certain polynomials.
