Course: Elementary Algebra
Topic: Exponents and Polynomials
Subtopic: Polynomial Operations II - Multiply


Continuing our work with polynomials, in this lesson we focus on multiplication of monomials and smaller polynomials. The skills here extend your knowledge of working with exponents nicely so it may help to review the "rules of exponents".


By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:


Terms you should be able to define: product rule of exponents, distributive law, horizontal method of multiplying polynomials

Text Notes

You may recall from a previous algebra course the FOIL method of multiplying two binomials. FOIL is covered in a separate lesson notes page as your text too may cover FOIL separately.
