Got zeros? Polynomials do! Multiplicity of Zeros (Day 1 of 3)

Unit 2: Polynomial Functions and Equations
Lesson 5 of 15

Objective: SWBAT• Determine the degree of polynomial functions and understand the relationship between degree and end behavior of polynomial functions. • Write possible equations for a polynomial function, given information about its zeros. • Write polynomial equations in factored form, given the graphs of three functions.

Big Idea: Using Nspire Calculators, students investigate the relationships of polynomial functions, their degree, end behaviors, zeros and x-intercepts.
