Mr. Yates – Algebra II with Trigonometry

Randomly generate the following numbers: 1. How many linear factors your polynomial will have (must be 3 or 4): 2. The coefficients of your linear factors between -3 and 4 (two coefficients per factor: __x + __ ). List each linear factor here. First factor: Second: Third: Fourth if applicable:

Steps 3-13 should be done on separate sheets of paper, lined for algebraic math work, graph-ruled for graphs. 3. Write down your resulting polynomial, p(x), in factored form. 4. Set your polynomial equal to 0 and solve to find its zeros (use the zero factor property). 5. Graph each linear factor (line), on a single sheet of graph paper. 6. Use the method we learned today/yesterday to identify where your polynomial is positive and negative, and draw a rough sketch its graph on the same sheet of graph paper. 7. Identify the end behavior of your polynomial function. 8. Use the distributive property to multiply your factors together, then combine like terms (show work!!!!), then write your polynomial in standard form. 9. What are the degree and leading coefficient of your polynomial? 10. Evaluate your polynomial when x = 0 (that is, plug 0 in for x in your polynomial). Show your arithmetic work, step by step, starting with the factored form. Do again, showing your work, starting with your polynomial in standard form. Do you get the same answer? 11. Evaluate your polynomial, in both forms, when x = 3. 12. Evaluate your polynomial, in both forms, when x = -2. 13. Graph all the lines and your final polynomial in GeoGebra, to verify your graphs. Print this out and attach to the rest of your work.

Project will be graded out of 25, two points per step (with one possible extra point). All pages must be stapled together, with your name at the top of EVERY PAGE, to receive credit.
