**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

☑ Answer Key

☑ 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.**

**☺Would love to hear your feedback☺.** Please don't forget to come back and rate this product when you have a chance. You will also earn TPT credits. Enjoy and I **☺thank you☺** for visiting my **☺Never Give Up On Math☺** store!!!

**© Never Give Up On Math 2016**

*This product is intended for personal use in one classroom only. For use in multiple classrooms, please purchase additional licenses. *

☺ HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY ☺
