- Now, let's learn about naming polynomials based on their degrees
- So, I found the scroll. Just read it over and let me know if you have any questions. Here!
- Wait, I think I learned a bit about this in school last year. Can I try to explain this one?
- I got it, let's go to the Hephaestus Cabin now
- Sure!
- Wait, I remember reading about this sphere in one of the books Athena gave me. There are six layers within this sphere. To open each layer, we need to solve the question(s) inscribed on the surface and trace the answer using our fingers on the sphere. Once we open all six layers, there might be something inside that will help us with our quest.
- Perfect, I can do the adding and subtracting polynomials questions but after that, you will have to teach me how to solve the questions

- From what I remember, a degree of a polynomial is basically just finding the sum of the of the exponents of its variables. A polynomial with a degree of 1 would be a linear polynomial but I'm not sure about how to name polynomials if the degree is higher than one.
- Great, you were correct about what a degree is and how to name a polynomial with a degree of 1. I have a scroll somewhere around here on how to name polynomials with a degree higher than one. I'm gonna go find it for you.
- Cool! Umm, are we done yet 'cause this is sorta getting boring? No offense
- Yeah, no offense taken, it is boring for me too. Let's first finish naming polynomials and we can do the rest of the lesson in the Hephaestus cabin.
