This Puzzle Match & EMOJI Activity is part of:
2017 Google Interactive Membership {GROWING BUNDLE} - Current & Future Products

This ❤ Google Interactive Activity ❤ is an engaging practice of using the FUNDAMENTAL THEOREM OF ALGEBRA. In this activity, students are asked to:

1. Determine number of complex roots of a polynomial equation (May need to rewrite in standard form)
2. Solve Polynomial Equations

My students found this activity helpful and engaging. They always say: "We should do more of this". This products assess many aspects of solving Polynomial Equations. I strongly encourage you to see the "SHORT VIDEO" that I've attached in the preview. I hope that you find it beneficial.

In this activity students would solve a higher degree polynomial. Therefore, students would need to consider using any of the following techniques:
☑ Use the Rational Root Theorem (to find a factor)
☑ Factoring GCF
☑ Factoring Trinomials
☑ Factoring Difference of Two Squares
☑ Solve by using the Square Root Property
☑ Solve by using the Quadratic Formula

This activity is a step higher comparing to ( Solve Polynomial Equations) as in some examples students have to start with the Rational Root Theorem, Synthetic Division, and so on until they end up with the quadratic function.
The solutions of these polynomials maybe:
☑ Real Solutions only
☑ Real and Complex Solutions

This “Google Interactive Product” consists of 2 Activities
☑ Activity 1: Determine number of Complex Roots based on the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra
☑ Activity 2: Solve 4 different functions (higher degree: 5 or 6) starting in some cases with the Rational Root Theorem and eventually put together 4 EMOJIs

Students would need to be familiar with the basics of the "Fundamental Theorem of Algebra". They would need to know that number of roots of a polynomial is related to the degree of the polynomial. In couple of cases, they would need to rewrite the equation in Standard Form

There are additional 8 questions provided in a PDF format in this file to be assigned as a homework or as a practice.

I have assigned this activity in the classroom as my students did some work in the class and had to finish the rest at home. I witnessed many "AHHAA" moments during this activity that I know I have not seen while practicing the same concepts on paper. I guess Google Interactive is somehow magical and help students connect.
In this activity students will be using Google Slides. Some students used their computers, some used their phones, while others used their IPADs. As long as there is a Google Drive there is a way.

I have attached an example slide to this products to helps students refresh in solving Polynomial Functions.

This activity includes the followings:
☑ Instructions on how to obtain the Google Interactive Activity
☑ Instructions on how to perform the activity (with pictures)
☑ 2 Activities (PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE PREVIEW as the questions are part of the preview provided. Please take a look BEFORE PURCHASING)
☑ 2 detailed illustrated examples on how to answer the questions
☑ 8 Additional Questions that could be assigned as a homework (PDF format, Not Google Slide)

Since the answer key is included in the file. I usually share it when all assignments are turned in "Electronically"

I use Algebra II Common Core Pearson Textbook. This activity works very well with Section 5.6: Fundamental Theorem of Algebra

If you are interested in models that will NOT require the use of the Rational Root Theorem, then check out this Google Interactive Puzzle.

If you are interested in models that are already factored and have less zeros, multiplicity is 1, and answers are always integers, then check out this Google Interactive Maze.

Also, If you are interested in models that have more zeros, higher multiplicities, and Fraction answers, then check out this Google Interactive Maze.
