In this Math tutorial, you will learn:

• What are monomials? What is their structure?
• What are the components of a monomial?
• What is a polynomial?
• What is the difference between a polynomial and an algebraic expression?
• What does a term of a polynomial represent?
• What is the difference between coefficients and constants in a polynomial?

• What are homogenous and non-homogenous polynomials? How do you know which of these categories a polynomial does belong?

## Introduction

Do you remember from the 6th chapter what algebraic expressions are? What do they consist of?

What do we call the elements of an algebraic expression? Which mathematical operators separate the terms of an algebraic expression from each other?

Which mathematical operators are closer to each other and which of them are hardly combined?

In this tutorial, we will explain monomials and polynomials - two fundamental concepts of algebra. Since polynomials are similar to algebraic expressions, we will explain them based on the concepts explained in the sixth chapter of this course.
