LESSON ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS
On multi-block paper, sketch the following “parent” functions which serve as common end behavior models:
x-intercepts/zeros _____ turning points _____
x-intercepts/zeros ______ turning points ______
For any polynomial function, the following apply:
For each polynomial, identify the max. number of roots and turning points and sketch a model:
Now use your graphing calculator to find the roots and turning points.
