The degree of polynomial is the greatest exponent of a term. The greatest exponent should have a non-zero coefficient in a polynomial expressed as a sum or difference of terms which is commonly known as Canonical form. The sum of the powers of all variables in the term is the degree of the polynomial. The degree can also be specified as order. The degree of polynomial is for the single variable or the combination of two or more variables with the powers.

In this page we are going to discuss about roots of polynomials concept . In any polynomial, root is the value of the independent variable that satisfies the polynomial. In general, the degree of a polynomial is equal to the number of roots. Roots of a polynomial are also known as zeroes of a polynomial.

Students use this template to graph given polynomial equations or to give the equations of given polynomial graphs. Students are also asked to note the degree, end behavior, zeros, if there are any multiplicities and the domain. This template is great for warm ups - print a stack to be ready for the week.
