SPRING BREAK!!!!!

## monday,march 14

Test #3 .......This test is students' last chance to improve the test average for Q3. I want to make sure every student has one last chance to improve his/her test average. Due to the weather, some classes were unable to complete the review. After much consideration, I have decided to alter the make-up of the test. I want students to be able to accurately demonstrate the knowledge gained during the first 3 units. I feel that a comprehensive test over Unit 3 at this time would be unfair to those who did not get a chance to review. With that in mind, Test 3 will cover all of Unit 1 and 2 but will only cover the basic concepts of Unit 3. (Listed below) A comprehensive test over Unit 3 will be given at a later date. We will discuss this in class next week.

Basically, you should be able to do everything that you have been previously quizzed over. You will not be asked to

**Unit 3 basic concepts**

The student should be able to:The student should be able to:

- Determine the end behaviors of the graph of a polynomial function given the equation in any form.
- Interpret end behaviors written in symbolic notation.
- Find the x and y - intercepts of a polynomial function given the equation in factored form.
- Determine the multiplicity of roots given the equation in factored form.
- Graph a polynomial equation given in factored form.
- Write the equation of a polynomial function in factored form given its' graph.
- Identify the zeros, y-intercepts, x-intercepts, end behaviors and multiplicity of roots given the graph of a polynomial function
- Use synthetic substitution/division to factor a cubic equation.
- Use the rational roots theorem to determine the possible roots of a polynomial function. (cubic only)
- Perform long division with polynomials and interpret the remainder.
- Factor a cubic equation using the sum and difference of two cubes.

Basically, you should be able to do everything that you have been previously quizzed over. You will not be asked to

__factor__a polynomial of degree 4 or higher at this time. You will also not have to use DesCartes' Rule or work with higher order polynomials in standard form. YOU WILL SEE HIGHER ORDER POLYNOMIALS IN FACTORED FORM!
