Lesson 14

What Do You Know About Polynomials?

Lesson Narrative

The purpose of this lesson is for students to bring together what they have learned so far about sketching graphs of polynomials expressed in factored form and factoring polynomials using division. The main activity is an Information Gap in which students must ask for the information they need to factor a polynomial and then sketch its graph, requiring them to use precise language as they work with their partner (MP6).

Learning Goals

Teacher Facing

  • Determine what information is needed to sketch a polynomial function given a known factor. Ask questions to elicit that information.

Student Facing

  • Let's put together what we've learned about polynomials so far.

Learning Targets

Student Facing

  • I can use division to rewrite a polynomial in factored form starting from a known factor and then sketch what it looks like.
