2 A Higher Power Linear functions are special cases of quadratic functions, just set the parameter _____ , common to all form, to zero and see for your self. So we have that ___________ functions are a subfamily of __________ functions, which in turn are a sub family of __________. All of these are members of a general class of functions known as __________________. 3 2 A Higher Power, part 2 A Polynomial functions is a sum of products of a number, called a ____________, with the input variable raised to a fixed power. The highest seen power is called the __________ of the polynomial and the corresponding multiplier is called the _________ ____________. In symbols, They have smooth __________ curves as their graphs. They may also be written as, However, the zeros may not be ________ numbers, but a larger number system called the ___________ numbers which have the form, 4 4
