Ch 15: Polynomial Functions: Homeschool Curriculum

The Polynomial Functions unit of this High School Precalculus Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about the basics of polynomial functions. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Precalculus Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to understand polynomial functions basics. There is no faster or easier way to learn about polynomial functions. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about intervals of polynomial functions, polynomials in function notation, polynomial graphs, Pascal's Triangle, or the binomial theorem.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a precalculus curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a Polynomial Functions unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Polynomial Functions Unit Objectives:

• Give examples of leading terms and coefficients.
• Discover how to understand polynomial graphs.
• Illustrate the short- and long-run behavior of polynomials.
• Learn to graph cubics, quartics and quintics.
• Use Pascal's Triangle with polynomials.
• Explain binomial expressions used in the binomial theorem.
