  • identify a polynomial function,
  • write a one-variable polynomial function,
  • find the degree and leading coefficient of a given polynomial function,
  • recall the names of the different types of polynomial functions,
  • evaluate polynomial functions at given points.


Students should already be familiar with

  • the order of operations,
  • relations and function notation.


Students will not cover

  • graphs of polynomial functions.
