Section 2.4 Dividing Polynomials; Remainder and Factor Theorem
A) Long Division of Polynomials
1) Arrange the terms of both the dividend and divisor in descending order and include any missing terms
in the polynomials as well.
2) Divide the first term in

Axis of symmetry is when x = h
A) Standard Form of a Quadratic Function
1) The quadratic function is in standard form.
2) The graph of f is a parabola whose vertex is the

is the leading coefficient because it has the highest power (exponent)
Polynomial Functions with degree 2 or higher have smooth (not pointed anywhere) and continuous (no
