Performing Algebraic Operations on Polynomials
So far, 8 multiple choice questions have been asked on the 1st 10 Common Core Regents Exams, less than 1 per exam, but if you master the ability to use the NSpire’s to test for equivalence, you should count on earning these points. The breakdown of the question topics, and how many questions that have been asked for each topic is shown below. (Updated July 2017)
- Polynomial Addition/ Subtraction. (2 questions)

Testing for Equivalence
Though this skill rarely shows up as a direct question, understanding this skill can be worth a minumum of 5 correct answers on the Regents.
Addition and Subtraction of Polynomials
Only 2 questions that ONLY require you to subtract polynomials have appeared on a Regents Exam, but 4 others that also require you to multiply or divide have been asked. If you use the nSpire to check, this is an easy question to earn points on.
Multiplication of Polynomials
Only 2 questions that ONLY require you to multiply polynomials have appeared on a Regents Exam, but 4 others that also require you to add and subtract have been asked. If you use the nSpire to check, this is an easy question to earn points on.
See how well you are prepared for the exam. Below are two sets of questions, the actual questions that have appeared on Regents Exams, and a 2nd parallel set, testing the same skills for additional practie.
