Math Club Talk, The Calculus of Polynomials, Without Calculus

Thu. August 24, 2017, 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM - Boyd Grad Studies, Room 304
We all know how to find the tangent line to a polynomial at a given point, using the tools we learned in calculus. However, there's a simpler way of spotting tangency without using calculus at all - just simple algebra. We'll answer some questions about tangency - some very simple, and some not so obvious at all. For example, if I give you a line and three points on the line, can you find a polynomial of degree 6 (or higher), which is tangent to the line at those three points?
