Polynomial Functions

This unit describes polynomial functions and looks at some of their properties. After reading this text you should be able to: recognise when a rule describes a polynomial function and write down the degree of the polynomial; recognize the typical shapes of the graphs of polynomials of degree up to 4; understand what is meant by the multiplicity of a root of a polynomial; sketch the graph of a polynomial given its expression as a product of linear factors.
