evaluating polynomials in function notation
In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of variables and coefficients which only employs the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents
Got it
parent function
In mathematics, a parent function is the simplest function of a family of functions that preserves the definition of the entire family
Got it
factor theorem
In algebra, the factor theorem is a theorem linking factors and zeros of a polynomial
Got it
rational zero
In algebra, the rational root theorem states a constraint on rational solutions of a polynomial equation with integer coefficients
Got it
synthetic division
In algebra, synthetic division is a method of performing Euclidean division of polynomials, with less writing and fewer calculations than occur with polynomial long division
Got it
degree
A degree is a measurement of plane angle, defined by representing a full rotation as 360 degrees
Got it
continuous
In mathematics, a continuous function is, roughly speaking, a function for which sufficiently small changes in the input result in arbitrarily small changes in the output

function notation
In mathematics, a function is a relation between a set of inputs and a set of permissible outputs with the property that each input is related to exactly one output
standard form
A standard form contract is a contract between two parties, where the terms and conditions of the contract are set by one of the parties, and the other party has little or no ability to negotiate more favorable terms and is thus placed in a "take it or leave it" position
remainder theorem
In algebra, the polynomial remainder theorem or little Bézout's theorem is an application of Euclidean division of polynomials
complex solutions
A complex number is a number that can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary unit which satisfies the equation i2 = -1
conjugate pair
In mathematics, the complex conjugate of a complex number is the number with equal real part and imaginary part equal in magnitude but opposite in sign
In mathematics, a coefficient is a multiplicative factor in some term of a polynomial, a series or any expression; it is usually a number, but in any case does not involve any variable of the expression
power function
Exponentiation is a mathematical operation, written as bn, involving two numbers, the base b and the exponent n
transformations of polynomial graphs
In mathematics, a polynomial transformation consists of computing the polynomial whose roots are a given function of the roots of polynomial
