Students connect polynomial arithmetic to computations with whole numbers and integers. åÊStudents learn that the arithmetic of rational expressions is governed by the same rules as the arithmetic of rational numbers. åÊThis unit helps students see connections between solutions to polynomial equations, zeros of polynomials, and graphs of polynomial functions. åÊPolynomial equations are solved over the set of complex numbers, leading to a beginning understanding of the fundamental theorem of algebra. åÊApplication and modeling problems connect multiple representations and include both real world and purely mathematical situations.
