When you're asked to graph a polynomial of a degree higher than 3...
Use your calculator and check the positive and negative values. (You can solve for the x-intercepts end behavior).
When you're asked to find all the factors and solutions to a polynomial...
Use your calculator, find all whole-number x-intercepts, Foil them together (if needed), divide them by the original equation, and then factor the dividend. Remember to SIMPLIFY ALL RADICALS
When asked to find Vertical Asymptotes...
Set the DENOMINATOR equal to zero.
When asked to find Horizontal Asymptotes...
Use the degrees...
-If the numerator and denominator degrees are the same, then divide the two leading coefficients.
-If the numerator has a smaller degree, then this number is 1.
-If the numerator has a larger degree, then there is none.
