Students use a graphing calculator to graph various polynomial functions. After completing the activity, students should be able to discover the relationship between the degree, lead coefficient and the end behavior of a function. An extension
Given the graph students are asked to identify the vertex, axis of symmetry, y intercept, x-intercept(s), intervals of increase/decrease and end behavior of the function. Students are also asked to write the function in vertex form given the graph.
