Cubics, Zeros and Tangents

Students graph cubic functions. In this cubic functions activity, students graph the tangent line at the average of two given roots. Students then graph the tangent line at two other average points to determine if the line goes through the cubic function. Students also make a conjecture and prove the pattern will continue in additional examples.
