The Dynamic Cubic Function

Unit 3: Cubic Functions
Lesson 7 of 13

Objective: SWBAT explain the effect each term of a cubic function has on the graph. SWBAT define the meaning of monomial, binomial, and polynomial. SWBAT identify polynomials as sums of monomials or products of binomials.

Big Idea: Using dynamic geometry software (GeoGebra) students intuitively understand the behavior of a cubic function.
