POLQ 3 | Lesson 1 | Standards

Core Content Standards

CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.APR.B.2 Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial \(p(x)\) and a number \(a\), the remainder on division by \(x-a\) is \(p(a)\), so \(p(a)=0\) if and only if \((x-a)\) is a factor of \(p(x)\).

CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.APR.B.3 Identify zeros of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeros to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.

Related Standards

CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.APR.A.1 Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.
