Reflection: Polynomials with Complexes… Complex Zeros that is! - Section 4: Closure: Practice Makes Perfect


This year I skipped this section due to the notes running long. Now that my students have been through the test review I know they could have used another day on factoring a polynomial completly and could use more help with imaginary number operations. Next year, I will be sure to have students complete a few of these whiteboard practice problems. Very important!

Polynomials with Complexes… Complex Zeros that is!

Unit 2: Polynomial Functions and Equations
Lesson 10 of 15

Objective: SWBAT identify the imaginary zeros of a polynomial function and use imaginary roots to find the standard form of a polynomial function.

Big Idea: Personal response systems keep students engaged and monitor their current progress as they find all zeros of a polynomial function.
