In this lesson students look at the end behavior of quadratic and linear functions and relate their prior knowledge to the new polynomial functions. Students draw connections between linear and odd functions, quadratic and even functions, and transformations. Student also analyze the number of roots a given graph can have based on its end behavior.
This lesson go with the "End Behavior Dance" power point presentation.
