Polynomial Functions, Equations and Inequalities

Polynomial Functions, Equations and Inequalities

## Learning Goal:

**The goal of this unit is to identify and describe some key features of polynomial functions, and make connections between the numeric, graphical and algebraic representations of polynomial functions.**

## Success Criteria:

**By the end of this unit, I will be able to:**

**Recognize, using criteria, a polynomial function from a graph or from an equation.****Sketch the graph of a polynomial function (from expanded form or from factored form)****State the end behaviours of a polynomial function using the dominant term and lead coefficient.****Solve polynomial equations algebraically**

- Solve polynomial inequalities.
- Use finite differences to be able to determine the equation of a higher degree polynomial function.
