Relationship between the Degree and the Number of X-intercepts of a Polynomial

Unit 7: Polynomial Functions
Lesson 7 of 9

Objective: Students will generate examples of polynomials to explain why the degree of a polynomial is greater than or equal to the number of x-intercepts of the polynomial.

Big Idea: Using examples and critical thinking questions, students will generate and justify their own statements about the relationship between the degree and the number of x-intercepts of a polynomial.
