Lesson Description:

How to find multiple parts to a polynomial

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

Questions answered by this video:
  • How do I find the degree of a polynomial?
  • What is the leading coefficient of a polynomial?
  • How do I know what the end behavior of a polynomial is by looking at the equation of the function?
  • How do I find the max number of zeros of a polynomial by looking at the equation of the function?
  • How do I find the max number of turning points of a polynomial by looking at the equation of the function?
  • What is the degree, the leading coefficient, the end behavior, the max number of zeros, and the max number of turning points of the function f(x)=3x^(1/2)-5x^8+(1/2)x^3-2x^10?
