**Algebra II**4.1: Graphing Polynomial Functions Objective: To identify polynomials, and to use several techniques to get rough sketches.**Vocabulary**• What is a monomial? • An expression that is either a number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables**Vocabulary**• What is a Polynomial? • A monomial or a sum of monomials**A polynomial function is in standard form when its terms are**written in descending order of exponents from left to right.**Vocabulary**• Polynomial Function = a function in the form: n is the degree or the highest exponent. is the leading coefficient. is the constant term.**the exponents are all whole numbers**• What is a whole number? • the coefficients are all real numbers • What is a real number?**Decide whether the function is a polynomial function. If so,**write it in standard form and state its degree, type, and leading coefficient.**Decide whether the function is a polynomial function.
