## Study Notes

### Algebraic Expressions

- Composed of constants (numbers) and variables (letter notations).
- Essential for forming equations and functions in mathematics.

### Constants

- Defined as numerical values that do not change.
- Fundamental components in algebraic expressions.

### Variables

- Represented by letters and can take on different values.
- Used to express general formulas and equations.

### Simplification

- Process of combining numbers and like terms in an expression.
- Aims to make expressions easier to work with or understand.

### Evaluating the Expression

- Involves simplifying the expression to result in a numerical value.
- Critical step in solving equations.

### Order of Operations

- Follow the acronym EMDAS to simplify expressions:
- E (Exponentiation)
- M (Multiplication)
- D (Division)
- A (Addition)
- S (Subtraction)

### Polynomial Expressions

- Made up of different powers of variables multiplied by constants.
- Terms are connected by addition or subtraction operators.

### Terms

- Individual parts of a polynomial that are separated by "+" or "-" signs.
- Each term can contain coefficients and variables.

### Coefficient of the Term

- Refers to the numerical factor in front of a variable in a term.
- Helps determine the weight or importance of a term in polynomials.

### Degree of a Term

- Calculated by summing the powers of all variables present in that term.
- Indicates the complexity and classification of polynomial terms.

### Rule #1 for Terms

- The degree of any non-zero constant term is defined as zero.
- Example: The term "7" has a degree of zero.

### Rule #2 for Terms

- The degree of the constant term "0" is not defined.
- Important to acknowledge in polynomial equations.

### Degree of the Polynomial

- Represents the highest degree of any term within the polynomial.
- Crucial for understanding the polynomial's behavior and graphing.
