What do polynomial functions look like? And what can be consider a polynomial function? Would a graph that is like an upside down V be considered as a graph of a polynomial function?

    "poly" is many in Greek and "nomial" means number
    so a polynomial is 'several terms'

    In highschool mathematics, a polynomial is an expression made up of two or more terms, where each term has an exponent n, so that n is a whole number.

    A "graph that is like an upside down V" would be a polynomial, and example would be
    f(x) = -x^2 + 3x - 1

    The following webpage lets you manipulate the coefficients for different functions to study the effects. Very interesting models.
