Associated Standards and Objectives
Content Standard(s):
 Mathematics MA2019 (2019) Grade: 9-12 Algebra I with Probability 7. Add, subtract, and multiply polynomials, showing that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Unpacked Content Evidence Of Student Attainment:Students: Use the repeated reasoning from prior knowledge of properties of arithmetic on integers to progress consistently to rules for arithmetic on polynomials. Accurately perform combinations of operations on various polynomials.Teacher Vocabulary:Polynomials Closure Analogous systemKnowledge:Students know: Corresponding rules of arithmetic of integers, specifically what it means for the integers to be closed under addition, subtraction, and multiplication, and not under division. Procedures for performing addition, subtraction, and multiplication on polynomials.Skills:Students are able to: Communicate the connection between the rules for arithmetic on integers and the corresponding rules for arithmetic on polynomials. Accurately perform combinations of operations on various polynomials.Understanding:Students understand that: There is an operational connection between the arithmetic on integers and the arithmetic on polynomials.
Learning Objectives:

Students will add and subtract polynomials.
