Find Factor Theorem educational ideas and activities
In this synthetic substitution worksheet, students evaluate three different function at specified points. Students also determine if given factors are factors of four specific polynomials. Additionally students use the Factor Theorem and synthetic division to determine rational roots for thirteen polynomial functions.
In this Algebra II/college level instructional activity, learners use long and synthetic division to divide polynomials and use the Factor Theorem to show that a given polynomial is a factor of a polynomial function. The two page instructional activity contains forty-four problems. Answers are included.
In this investigative lesson, a programmable calculator is used to help learners explore the properties of irrational numbers. Here, the square root of 2 is calculated to a large number of decimal places by using an iterative algorithm the converges to value of the square root of two.
Here is a unit test on finding factors and zeros of higher-degree polynomials that could be used as a review or practice test. The Remainder Theorem, Rational Zero Theorem, and Factor Theorem are put into use. While this four-page worksheet does provide a good set of problems, it does not include an answer key.
