How are the linear graphs alike? 2. How are the quadratic graphs alike? 3. How are the remaining graphs alike? 4. Compare the number of x-intercepts of each graph and the greatest exponent found in its equation. What is the relationship? A Monomial (one term) or the sum of Monomials. The exponent of the variable gives you the degree of that term. Standard Form: highest degree to low f ( x) x 4 x 2 x 8 5 3 Degree of polynomial is the largest degree of any term Write each polynomial in standard form Then classify it by degree and # of terms 6-1 Homework Page 309 1-12 evens Page 310 34-44 evens
