 PARA SINGS 05ax2 + bx + c  presents...."Polynomials"  (*aka "California Gurls" [sic], Katy Perry)featuring ROOT!--------    Song Lyric Reference:       Official Music Video:[Root:]Advanced Functions --Let's do some graphing[Para:]I have some termsCount them as your first objective:One, two or three'Nomial' names are now selectedIf there's only 'x'Using terms of different degreesThat's a functionYou can graph with relative ease (no fuss)Take the biggest exponentOur turning points countLess than that amountMax and min or inflectionYou'll be checking with slope   (Oh. OhOhOhOhOhOh.)[Chorus!]PO-LY-NO-MI-ALSWe're differentiableWhat's in front used to be on topD-Y by D-XYou're going tangential   (OhOhOhOh. Oh. Oooooh.)PO-LY-NO-MI-ALSWe're so reliableZero setYour values will dropNote end behaviourNow join your points up   (OhOhOhOh. Oh. Oooooh.)Check interceptsUse factor theorem if you have toWe seekFrequencyFor do we turn or do we pass through?Take the biggest exponentOur turning points countLess than that amountMax and min or inflectionYou'll be checking with slope   (Oh. OhOhOhOhOhOh.)[Chorus!]PO-LY-NO-MI-ALSWe're differentiableWhat's in front used to be on topD-Y by D-XYou're going tangential   (OhOhOhOh. Oh. Oooooh.)PO-LY-NO-MI-ALSWe're so reliableZero setYour values will dropNote end behaviourNow join your points up    (OhOhOhOh. Oh. Oooooh.)[Root:]Mono, bi, tri and polyTerms we got have me thinkin' golly,F prime of XThis is the part I find complexWhat this becomesWhat this and that becomesThis sideThat sideSqueeze theorem?My term's a freakI've no technique...Here's my critique:I'm astrayJust halfwayIn disarrayThat power's too risque!Didn't checkExponents...Polys need those componentsMy graphDoodlingPointless asNoodlingLinguines, RotinisIn Beanies, with GeniesDon't forget fettuchinesPara, you know (yeah?)There is a motto (uh huh)Know differentialsWhen you will be graphing Polynomials[Chorus!]PO-LY-NO-MI-ALSWe're differentiableWhat's in front used to be on topD-Y by D-XYou're going tangential(OhOhOhOh. Oh. Oooooh.)PO-LY-NO-MI-ALSWe're so reliableZero setYour values will dropNote end behaviour     (right most, right most)Now join your points up      (heyyy... heyyy....)    (OhOhOhOh. Oh. Oooooh.)POLY, POLY.... PO-LY-NO-MI-ALS(Polynomials, man)POLY, POLY.... PO-LY-NO-MI-ALS(I really wish all functions could be polynomials.)--
