This EMOJI activity is included in
EMOJI - BUNDLE Polynomial Functions 50%+ OFF
✐ This product is a NO PREP - SELF CHECKING
activity that engage students in"Identifying the Intervals of Increase & Decrease of Polynomial Functions"
. Students will work with 12 Questions
where students have to use a "Graphing Calculator"
to graph the given polynomial function and determine the intervals of Increase & Decrease of the function.
This EMOJI requires students to have a mastery of:
☑ Using Graphing Calculators and be able to find the "Relative Maximum" or "Relative Minimum" of the given graph [Turning Points]
☑ Using a Graphing Software (ex. Desmos) and recognize the turning points
☑ Write Interval Notations (using Parenthesis) - All intervals are open intervals
☑ Identify the Increasing portion of the graph
☑ Identify the Decreasing portion of the graph
☑ Polynomials of this activity are of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th degree
☑ Some polynomials have 0 turning points while others may have 1, 2, 3, or 4
This EMOJI has a DETAILED ANSWER KEY WITH GRAPHS PROVIDED TO SUPPORT THE ANSWERS so students could make a connection.
I use this activity to help my students practice intervals of increase & intervals of decrease on a polynomial function before moving to a more complex functions
I encourage my students to use a Graphing Calculator to identify the turning points.
I also encourage my students to check their work using Desmos. So, if you're looking for an activity that is technology related, you've just found the one.
Students would need to solve the mystery emoji by following the color key.
Please, take a look at the PREVIEW
before purchasing to make sure that this creative activity meets your expectations. After seeing the preview, If you would like to modify it in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me via Q and A
. I will update and include a second version in this product JUST FOR YOU ☻
My students are fascinated with an additional coloring option that I have included where they could pick their own colors. They have become very very creative. I am including this option in this emoji and I truly hope that your kids will love it as much as mine have.
✶ ✶ ✶
My students truly were ENGAGED
answering the questions and had a BLAST COLORING
and finding the mystery picture much better than the textbook problems.✶ ✶ ✶
This RELAXING EMOJI could be used in:
math centers, group work, a way to check for understanding, a review, recap of the lesson, pair-share, cooperative learning, exit ticket, entrance ticket, homework, individual practice, when you have time left at the end of a period, beginning of the period (as a warm up or bell work), before a quiz on the topic, substitute planning, and more.
