MAC 2233 Curve Sketching Section 3.3 Polynomial Function Recall that a polynomial function is a function where each term is of the form #x whole number . Examples of Polynomial Functions: 1 3 2 1 ) ( 3 + = x x x g 2 4 2 3 ) ( 3 4 + + = x x x x f h Polynomial Functions are continuous functions. o Since they are continuous, they do NOT have any vertical asymptotes. h Polynomial Function go to + or - at the ends. o y-values go up or down at the end of the graph. How to Graph a Polynomial Function 1. Find the intervals of increase and decrease. 2. Find the intervals of concavity.
