## How are Polynomials Ordered?

Polynomials are ordered based on there degree. The highest degree goes first and the lowest go last.

## Box Method

1. Draw a box and write polynomials across the top and side aligned to where each term is on top of or beside a box.

2. Multiply as if its a multiplication chart.

3.Combine like terms

## Why does it work?

The box method works because you are multiplying each term together and you can simplify to get the correct answer. The box method is a visual representation so you can see exactly what you need to multiply together.
