Big Ideas: When multiplying polynomials, we can multiply like and unlike terms. When multiplying like term polynomials, we multiply the coefficients and add the exponents. Students will build on their knowledge of operations with polynomials. In this task, students learn to multiply polynomials using the rules of integers, rules of exponents, combining like terms, and the distributive property. Vocabulary: monomial, binomial, degree, area
