1.
ascending order: terms of a polynomial arranged so the powers of one variable are in increasing order

2.
binomial: a polynomial with two terms separated by addition or subtraction

3.
degree of a monomial: the sum of the exponents of all its variables

4.
degree of a polynomial: the degree of the monomial term with the highest degree

5.
descending order: terms of a polynomial arranged so the powers of one variable are in decreasing order

6.
like terms: monomial terms that are either identical or differ only in their coefficients

7.
monomial: a number, a variable, or a product of a number and one or more variables

8.
multiplying binomials: product is found by FOIL (First Outer Inner Last), vertical, horizontal methods, and the box

9.
multiplying polynomials: product is found by using the distributive property and simplifying by combining like terms

10.
multiply polynomial by monomial: product is found by distributing the monomial by each term inside the parentheses, remembering to add exponents of bases

11.
negative exponents: switch the location of the term (if at top moves to bottom, if at bottom moves to top) "once you move it, loose it (the negative)"

12.
polynomial: a monomial or a sum of monomials

13.
power: an expression of the form xⁿ, when x is the base and n is the exponent

14.
power of a power: multiply exponents

15.
power of a product: raise each term inside parentheses to the power

16.
power of a quotient: raise each term inside the parentheses to the power

17.
product of a sum and difference: (a + b)(a - b) = a² - b²

18.
product of powers: when you have the same base, and are multiplying, add exponents

19.
quotient of powers: subtract exponents of the same bases

20.
square of a difference: (a - b)² = (a - b)(a - b) = a² - 2ab + b²

21.
square of a sum: (a + b)² = (a + b)(a + b) = a² + 2ab + b²

22.
trinomial: a polynomial with three terms separated by addition or subtraction

23.
zero exponent: anything to the zero power is always one

Print the PDF. Fold each page down the middle along the dotted vertical line and cut the solid horizontal lines.

If your printer has a special "duplex" option, you can use it to automatically print double-sided. However for most printers, you need to:

**Print the "odd-numbered" pages first**- Feed the printed pages back into the printer
- Print the "even-numbered" pages

**If your printer prints pages face up**, you may need to tell your printer to reverse the order when printing the even-numbered pages.

Please use the "Open PDF" button to print your set.

**Why?**
In order to provide a consistent printing experience across different computers and web browsers, we've provided a standard PDF format for you to print.
