Polynomials play an important role in mathematics, particularly in number theory. The desire to find solutions to polynomials over the integers led to the study of numbers such as the square root of 2 and the cube root of 5. Polynomials themselves behave like integers in many ways. In this talk, we'll examine the analogy between polynomials and integers, including the notion of what it means for a polynomial to be "prime".
