What is the relationship between the graph of a polynomial function and its equation or solutions?

I will be able to:
  • identify key features of polynomial graphs & their transformations (5.1, 5.10, 5.11)
  • perform operations on polynomial expressions (5.2, 5.3, 5.4)
  • factor polynomials using various methods & use factoring to solve & write polynomial equations (5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 5.8, 5.9)

5: polynomial functions

5.1: Graphs of Polynomial Functions5.10: Transformations of Polynomial Functions5.11: Characteristics of Polynomial FunctionsA2.F.1.2 - Identify the parent forms of exponential, radical (square root and cube root only), quadratic, and logarithmic functions. Predict the effects of transformations [𝑓(π‘₯ + 𝑐), 𝑓(π‘₯) + 𝑐, 𝑓(𝑐π‘₯), π‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ 𝑐𝑓(π‘₯)] algebraically and graphically. A2.F.1.5 - Analyze the graph of a polynomial function by identifying the domain, range, intercepts, zeros, relative maxima, relative minima, and intervals of increase and decrease.
