The DEGREE of a polynomial is the largest degree of any single term in the polynomial

(Polynomials are often written in descending order of the degree of its terms)

COEFFICIENTS are the numerical value of each term in the polynomial

The LEADING COEFFICIENTis the numerical value of the term with the HIGHEST DEGREE.

### POLYNOMIALS REVIEW

For each polynomial

Write the polynomial in descending order

Identify the DEGREE and LEADING COEFFICIENT of the polynomial

Finding values of a polynomial: Substitute values of x into polynomial and simplify:

Find each value for

Constant Function Linear Function Quadratic Function

(degree = 0) (degree = 1) (degree = 2)

Cubic Function Quartic Function Quintic Function

(deg. = 3) (deg. = 4) (deg. = 5)

1) How does the degree of a polynomial function relate the number of roots of the graph?

The degree is the maximum number of zeros or roots that a graph can have.

2) Is there any relationship between the degree of the polynomial function and the shape of the graph?

Number of Changes in DIRECTION OF THE GRAPH = DEGREE

EVEN DEGREES: Start and End both going UP or DOWN

ODD DEGREES: Start and End as opposites  UP and DOWM

Describe possible shape of the following based on the degree and leading coefficient:

3) What additional information (value) related the degree of the polynomial may affect the shape of its graph?

Numerical Value of Degree

ODD DEGREE:

POSITIVE Leading Coefficient = START Down and END Up

NEGATIVE Leading Coefficient = START Up and END Down

EVEN DEGREE:

= UP

= DOWN

• Identify the degree as odd or even and state the assumed degree.

• Identify leading coefficient as positive or negative.

EXTREMA: MAXIMUM and MINIMUM points are the highest and lowest points on the graph.

C

• Point A is a Relative Maximumbecause it is the highest point in the immediate area (not the highest point on the entire graph).

• Point B is a Relative Minimumbecause it is the lowest point in the immediate area (not the lowest point on the entire graph).

• Point C is the Absolute Maximumbecause it is the highest point on the entire graph.

• There is no Absolute Minimumon this graph because the end behavior is:

(there is no bottom point)

The WINDOW needs to be large enough to see graph!

• The ZEROES/ ROOTS of a polynomial function are the x-intercepts of the graph.

Input [ Y=] as Y1 = function and Y2 = 0

[2nd ] [Calc]  [Intersect]

• To find EXTEREMA(maximums and minimums):

Input [ Y=] as Y1 = function

[2nd ][Calc]  [3: Min] or [4: Max]

• LEFT and RIGHT bound tells the calculator where on the domain to search for the min or max.

• y-value of the point is the min/max value.

Using your calculator: GRAPH the each polynomial function and IDENTIFY the ZEROES, EXTREMA, and END BEHAVIOR.
