Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x - a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x - a) is a factor of p(x).

Big Idea:

Rather than giving students functions or graphs, ask them to generate their own functions and graphs to fit descriptions. This makes students the authors of the problems--and engages them in a different level of critical thinking, while giving them the cha
