3.1 In a polynomial: the exponent is a whole number domain of the fcn is all real numbers range is all real numbers, but can be lower or upper bound. graphs have no vertical or horizontal asymptotes n=1 Linear n=2 Quadratic n=3 Cubic n=4 Quartic n=5 Quintic 3.2 End Behaviour determined by the degree and leading coefficient Even degrees have the same end behavior while odd degrees have opposite end behavior Turning Points - Any odd or even degree function has n-1 turning points at most Zeros - If the degree is odd, then the function has at least 1 zero and n zeros at most - If the degree is even, then the function can either 0 zeros or n zeros at most. Max and Min: - Not all functions have an absolute max or min - If the degree is even, then you can have either an absolute max or min 3.3 The zeros of the polynomial function are the same as the roots of the related polynomial equation, f(x) = 0. To find the eqn:
