Given a table, equation or written description of a polynomial function of degree 3 or higher, graph that function and determine its key features.


Clarification 1: Key features are limited to domain; range; intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetry; and end behavior. 

Clarification 2: Instruction includes representing the domain and range with inequality notation, interval notation or set-builder notation.
