## Graphing Polynomial Functions

A **monomial** is a number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables. A **polynomial** is a monomial or a sum of monomials. A **polynomial function** is of the form f(x) = a_{n}x^{n} + a_{n – 1}x^{n – 1} + … + a_{1 }x + a_{0}. When a polynomial is written in descending powers of x, the number in front (multiplied by the highest power of x) is the **leading coefficient**. The highest power of x is the **degree** of the polynomial. The last term is the **constant**. Often the best way to learn about functions is to discover their characteristics. Use the Polynomial Functions Exploration and Desmos or a graphing calculator to learn about end behaviors of these functions.
