# Ch 16: High School Algebra: Properties of Polynomial Functions

Watch video lessons and learn about the different properties of polynomial functions. Engaging animations and on-screen graphics are used throughout the videos to help you retain key info quicker.

## Properties of Polynomial Functions - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

In these lessons our instructors will show you how to add, subtract, multiply and divide polynomial functions. In addition to video lessons, we provide quizzes to help you assess your comprehension of the material. There is also a lesson that focuses on providing practice problems to help you apply polynomial division concepts. After completing this chapter, you should be able to:

• Graph quartics, cubics and quintics
• Explain local minimums and maximums
• Evaluate polynomials with several variables
• Use long and synthetic division to divide polynomials
• Add, multiply and subtract polynomials that have several variables
