Polynomials are algebraic expressions with one or more terms, where each term consists of a variable raised to a non-negative integer exponent multiplied by a coefficient. In this lesson, we'll cover the basic operations with polynomials, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and long division.

Polynomials are fundamental in mathematics and have applications in various fields, including algebra, calculus, physics, and engineering. Mastery of polynomial operations is crucial for solving complex equations and modeling real-world situations.
