However I would like to check my understanding: The reason its min poly couldn't be a quartic or higher is because $[\mathbb{Q}(\theta):\mathbb{Q}]=3$, and since $\theta$ and $\frac{\theta^2 -\theta}{2}$ can each be constructed from the other in $\mathbb{Q}(\theta)$, this means it couldn't be quadratic or lower. Thus its min poly had to be a cubic. Thanks.
