Product Description
This activity is a good review of understanding how to "Find the zeros of Polynomial Functions". There are 17 questions provided. From start to end, the student will be able to answer 12 questions out of the 14 provided to get to the end of the maze.

The polynomial functions are:
☑ SOME Polynomial Functions are given in factored form
☑ SOME Polynomial Functions need to be factored out (See Below for Factoring Techniques)
☑ The Leading coefficient of x is NOT 1.
☑ The multiplicity of some factors is more than 1
☑ The zeros are Rational, Irrational, & Complex

Factoring Techniques of this Maze are:
☑ Factor GCF
☑ Factor Difference of Two Squares
☑ Factor by Grouping
☑ Factor Trinomials (a is 1 or others)
☑ Factor Sum & Difference of Two Cubes (Requires the use of the Quadratic Formula)
☑ Factor Perfect Square Trinomial

Students would need to find the zeros by setting each factor equals to zero and isolate the x. The purpose behind this maze is to strengthen the ability of my students to finding the zeros given the factored form of Polynomial Functions AND factor a given polynomials to find the zero when a is not 1.

Please take a look at the preview and let me know if you have any questions via Q&A.

A STEP-BY-STEP Answer Key is Included in this Maze

These mazes will work very well with the first part of section 5.2 in Pearson Common Core Textbook and could be used as a homework.

This maze could be used as: 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, and more.
