Next: Horner's Rule for Polynomials

In these notes we lay the ground work for finding roots of polynomials using the Newton-Raphson method. In the process we discuss (1) evaluating a polynomial and its derivative efficiently using Horner's rule, (2) developing algorithms with pseudocode, and (3) passing lists (arrays) to subprograms.
