Unit 2: Polynomial Functions and Equations

Lesson 12 of 15

Lesson 12 of 15

## Objective: SWBAT find a polynomial function given its roots and end behaviors, sketch the graph of a polynomial and identify key features of these graphs, and factor a polynomial equation to find the zeros and its graph.

## Big Idea: Today’s project has students work in teams to factor a polynomial by hand and use this information to find the graph of the function.

Standards:

Subject(s):

Math, roots (Algebra), end behavior (polynomials), Polynomial Roots, Precalculus and Calculus, polynomial functions, Algebra 2, PreCalculus, zeros of functions, graphing polynomials, factored form, standard form
