In this lecture you will learn the Order of Operations with Professor Fraser. You will start by reviewing Variables and Algebraic Expressions as well as Order of Operations. Then, you will move onto Monomials and Polynomials and cover important concepts such as Constant, Coefficient, Degree, Power, Terms, Like Terms, Binomial, and Trinomial. Lastly, you will cover important Formulas for Area, Volume, and Surface Area, before ending with several in depth examples.
When evaluating an
expression, follow the standard order of operations: first
calculate exponents, then multiply and divide from left to right,
then add and subtract from left to right. BUT: parentheses always
override the standard rules. Always work within parentheses first.
understand the key terms: variable, expression, monomial, constant,
coefficient, polynomial, term, like terms, binomial, trinomial.
