In order to master the techniques explained here it is vital that you undertake plenty of practice exercises so that they become second nature.

After reading this text, and/or viewing the video tutorial on this topic, 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.

Contents

- Introduction
- What is a polynomial?
- Graphs of polynomial functions
- Turning points of polynomial functions
- Roots of polynomial functions
