Find teacher approved Intermediate Value Theorem educational resource ideas and activities
In this intermediate value theorem worksheet, 11th graders solve and complete 7 different types of problems. First, they sketch the graph of each function for the indicated values. Then, students use the intermediate value theorem to show that the function has a zero between each given variable.
In this calculus worksheet, students analyze one equation by finding the maximum number of zeros. They use Descarte's Rule of Signs and the rational roots theorem. Students use synthetic division to factor the polynomial. Students solve one equation for x. They use the intermediate Value Theorem to show that a given value is a zero of the function. Students find the domain of four relations.
In this intermediate value theorem activity, students use the intermediate value theorem to verify that equations are solvable. They find the slope, and determine the height and radius of given figures. Students complete rate and distance problems. This two-page activity contains eleven problems.
Focusing on this algebra lesson plan, learners relate quadratic equations in factored form to their solutions and their graph from a number of different aspects. In some problems, one starts with the original equation and finds the solutions. In other problems, one starts with the solutions or the graph and builds the original equation. There is also a projectile motion problem included with a number of interesting questions to be explored.
