Algebra 2 is a difficult subject for most high school students. Factoring, graphing, and otherwise working with polynomial functions is an important part of Algebra 2. Early in the course, students revisit quadratic equations and then move on to higher order polynomials, meaning functions like this one (yep, that's the graph for it over there): 
  • f(x) = x5 - 3x4 + 5x3 - x2 - 6x + 4
