The Discriminant
• The nature of the roots

18
The Discriminant
• It comes from the quadratic formula.

19
• When you apply the quadratic formula to any
quadratic equation, you will find that the value
of b²-4ac is either positive, negative, or 0.
• The value of the discriminant is what tells us
the nature of the roots (solutions) to the

20

Graphs of Polynomial Functions
26
Explore Look at the relationship between the
degree sign of the leading coefficient and the
right- and left-hand behavior of the graph of the
function.
27

28
Explore Look at the relationship between the

29
Continuous Function
• A function is continuous if its graph can be
drawn with a pencil without lifting the pencil
from the paper.

Continuous
Not Continuous
30
Polynomial Function
• Polynomial Functions have continuous graphs with
smooth rounded turns.
• Written
• Example

31
Explore using graphing CalculatorDescribe graph
as S or W shaped.
Function Degree of U turns

32
Generalizations?
• The number of turns is one less than the degree.
• Even degree ? W Shape
• Odd degree ? S Shape

33
Describe the Shape and Number of Turns.
34
Lets explore some more.we might need to revise
our generalization.
• Take a look at the following graph and tell me if
your conjecture is correct.

35
When n is odd
Lead Coefficient is Positive (an gt0), the graph
falls to the left and rises to the right
Lead Coefficient is Negative (an lt0), the graph
rises to the left and falls to the right
36
When n is even
Lead Coefficient is Positive (an gt0), the graph
rises to the left and rises to the right
Lead Coefficient is Negative (an lt0), the graph
falls to the left and falls to the right

42
A polynomial function (f) of degree n , the
following are true
• The function has at most n real zeros
• The graph has at most (n-1) relative extrema
(relative max/min)

45
Approximate any local maxima or minima to the
nearest tenth.Find the intervals over which the
function is increasing and decreasing.
