# Algebra 2 – Roots and Zeros (part 1 of 2)

Yay Math In Studio covers the Algebra 2 topic: Roots and Zeros. We're nearing the end of our exploration into polynomial functions. We can solve the equations by factoring, using synthetic division, dividing polynomials, completing the square, Descartes' Rule of Signs, and even the quadratic formula. But before that, we need to "depress" the polynomial, perhaps by talking about really sad things. Despite the presence of depressed polynomials, YAY MATH!
