I gave my students a few polynomial equations, a few quick check sheets and asked them to find the degree, end behavior, zeros, if there were any multiplicities, the domain, and to sketch the polynomial graph. We did some more practice with various degree polynomials, ones that we first had to factor, and ones with multiplicities greater than 2.

Drawing Polynomial Graphs

For this activity students could be given an example polynomial and have to fill out the table and determine the end behaviour before attempting to sketch the graph. Then an online tool could be used to find the actual graph to compare to their own.

Graphing Polynomial Project [Water Park]

This time around, I felt like my Polynomial unit needed a bit more to it. Last term, my kiddos did a small version of a graphing projec.

Students match 10 equations to their graphs in this quick introductory activity to polynomial graphing. There are also 2 blank grids on the answer sheet where students graph given equations. I use this activity when I'm first introducing polynomial graphing as a less open-ended way to make connections between polynomial graphs and the equations.

Polynomial Graphs: End Behavior

Explains how to recognize the end behavior of polynomials and their graphs. Points out the differences between even-degree and odd-degree polynomials, and between polynomials with negative versus positive leading terms.

Students sketch polynomial equations and write the equations of polynomial graphs in this task cards activity. 16 of the cards ask students to sketch given equations and 12 ask them to write the equations of given graphs. This activity can be used as extra practice, given as substitute work when you will be out, or as an assessment (this is how I use it).

Students use this template to graph given polynomial equations or to give the equations of given polynomial graphs. Students are also asked to note the degree, end behavior, zeros, if there are any multiplicities and the domain. This template is great for warm ups - print a stack to be ready for the week.

Polynomial Graphs:  zeros and their multiplicities

Demonstrates how to recognize the multiplicity of a zero from the graph of its polynomial. Explains how graphs just "kiss" the x-axis where zeroes have even multiplicities.
