Cubics, Zeros and Tangents

Students graph cubic functions. In this cubic functions instructional 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.

I was an intern last year. I didn't always have the time to look at the files of other teachers at 10pm at night. LessonPlanet saved me so many times I've lost count. I would look all over other websites for quality lesson plans and, no surprise, I always ended up here.
