Polynomial Functions

The first part of the chapter covers the parts of a polynomial, related terminology and how to perform polynomial operations. A special focus is placed on the extremely important skill of factoring polynomials. Students will understand how to factor out a polynomial GCF and build on this to learn many techniques to factor polynomials. Lastly, the chapter goes into the various methods and techniques to solve a polynomial of any degree. Students will specifically learn how to apply key concepts, skills (polynomial long and synthetic division) and theorems (Rational Root and Fundamental Theorem of Algebra) to find the roots of polynomial functions.
