PreCalculs Polynomial End Behavior.
This resource is designed for PreCalculus but is appropriate for Algebra 2 for some curricula. It includes two learning activities
The first is an interactive foldable with matching which helps your students sort through the four different types of end behavior by both odd and even powers, and the sign of the leading coefficient of the polynomial. It can be printed two sided back to back or one sided and students can make their own covers. Students determine the end behavior of four graphs, then cut and paste the pieces matching them into the appropriate areas of the foldable. The foldable then becomes a great reference and study guide for this important topic. Directions are included. Great for Interactive Notebooks!
The second part of this resource is a maze. Students determine the end behavior from an equation or from a description of a polynomial. They travel through the maze until the reach and endpoint. The same notation is used on the foldable and the maze. Students need to complete fourteen problems to complete the maze. Answer key included.
