This paper presents application of yet one more optimization technique based on evolutionary computation approach to locate the optimal values of the coefficients of terms of polynomial equations which is developed to classify the unknown dataset. A recent optimization technique known as Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) is used here for optimizing the coefficients of polynomial terms for classifying many bench mark datasets. The original mathematical model for classification problems are developed using Polynomial neural network (PNN) and then the coefficients of the terms of polynomials are optimized separately with Least mean square (LSE) and TLBO approach. The comparisons of the two approaches are suitably presented with classification accuracies for many bench mark datasets. The results reveal that TLBO optimized polynomials are performing better than LSE- optimized polynomial, herein known as PNN models for all investigated datasets.
