**Section 3.1 – Quadratic Functions**- online resources:
- Names of Polynomials - http://mathforum.org/dr.math/problems/rohan.05.22.99.html

This site provides a very good explanation of why second degree polynomials are called quadratic functions. - Quadratic Function - http://members.shaw.ca/ron.blond/QFA.CSF.APPLET/

This site provides a java grapher that shows the results of changing a, h and k in the standard form of quadratic functions. - Understanding Quadratic Functions - http://www.math.uri.edu/~pakula/quadslide.htm

This site provides java grapher that shows the results of changing a, h and k in the standard form of quadratic functions or the results of changing a, b, and c in a*x*^{2}+ b*x*+ c = 0. - Various Forms of a Quadratic Function: Completing the Square - http://science.kennesaw.edu/~plaval/Fall2001/m1113/wquad/node2.html

This site provides java grapher that it similar to the above site, but it also includes a description on how to complete the square. - Completing the Square I - http://school.discovery.com/homeworkhelp/webmath/polycs.html

This site provides a solver to complete the square of polynomials. The solver shows all steps in completing the square. - Completing the Square II - http://www.csm.astate.edu/algebra/csq.html

This site provides practice problems for completing the square of polynomials. The applet shows all steps in completing the square.

**Section 3.2 – Polynomial Functions and their Graphs**- online resources:
- Polynomial Functions - http://www.bismarckstate.com/FACULTY/MATH/leingang/resource/polynomials/polynomial_functions.htm

This site provides a a quick reference to the far-left/far-right behavior of a polynomial. - Rational Zeros of Polynomials - http://www.math.csusb.edu/math110/src/poly/rational_zeros.html

This site provides description on how to find the possible rational roots of a polynomial. - Find Roots of Real-Valued Functions - http://www.richland.cc.il.us/james/lecture/m116/polynomials/zeros.html

This site provides a suggested method to finding the zeros of a polynomial. - Find Roots of Real-Valued Functions - http://www-sfb288.math.tu-berlin.de/vgp/javaview/vgp/tutor/rootFinder/PaRootFinder.html

This site provides a java applet that finds the numerical roots of a function. To type in*f*(*x*) = 3*x*^{2}- 5*x*, you will need to type 3**u*^2 - 5**u*. To view the roots, press F1 or Ctrl-i. WARNING, the page takes a while to load.
