• What youll learn aboutHow to use transformations to sketch graphs of Polynomial FunctionsHow to use the Leading Coefficient Test to determine End Behavior of Polynomial FunctionsHow to find and use Zeros of Polynomial FunctionsHow to use the Intermediate Value Theorem to locate zeros and whyThese topics are important in modeling various aspects of nature and can be used to provide approximations to more complicated functions.

• Intermediate Value TheoremIf a and b are real numbers with a < b and if f is continuous on the interval [a,b], then f takes on every value between f(a) and f(b). In other words, if y0 is between f(a) and f(b), then y0=f(c) for some number c in [a,b].
