Algebra 2

Polynomials and Factoring provides a review of skills acquired in recognizing polynomial functions and how to describe their characteristics, such as Determining Degree in Polynomials. Explore Factored and Expanded Polynomials to determine a function's Zeros and their Multiplicities to strengthen the analytical skills necessary for further advancement within Algebra 2. This information, along with The Leading Coefficient Test, will help you create the Graph of a Polynomial Function. Expand your knowledge of Polynomials and Factoring by finding solutions with Linear Factors of Polynomials, or Reasoning Out Roots with the Intermediate Value Theorem.
