Graphing Polynomial Functions We will now use the strategies from the previous sections to sketch the graphs of higher order polynomials. Follow these steps and the process is quite easy… 1. Using the Remainder / Factor theorem and synthetic division, factor the function completely. This will give you the roots of the function where it crosses the x – axis. It will also set up intervals in which we will test points to get a general picture of the function.
