Polynomial expressions are typically first encountered during elementary algebra courses, although they are applied in mathematical, scientific and economic fields.

Rags to Riches

This polynomial learning game is based on the format of the popular Who Wants to be a Millionaire game show. In each round, players are given a multiple choice question about factoring polynomial expressions.

Players compete in 12 rounds of increasing difficulty, in the hope of winning a (fake) million dollars.
