Writing Rules for Polynomial Functions using Data Tables

Print Lesson

Objective

Students will be able to write equations for polynomial functions in the form y=ax^n, y=a(x-h)^n and y=ax^n+k given data tables. Students will be able to explain how to find key information about the function using the data table and how to determine which transformations are shown in a given data table.

Big Idea

Students will apply prior knowledge of transformations and analysis of data tables to write rules for polynomial functions.
