  • Degree: The maximum exponents among the monomials.
  • Factor: An expression being multiplied.
  • Linear factor: A factor of degree one.
  • Coefficient: An expression multiplying one of the monomials of the polynomial.
  • Root (or zero) of a polynomial: Given a polynomial p(x), the x values that satisfy p(x) = 0 are called roots (or zeroes) of the polynomial p.
  • Graphing
    • End behaviour –
    • Concavity –
    • Orientation –
    • Tangency point –
    • Inflection point – Point where concavity changes.
