This Zeroes and Factorization of a General Polynomial activity & project also includes:
- Answer Key
- Join to access all included materials
These four problems will guide your class through the idea behind the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, which states that a polynomial of degree n has exactly n roots. Use the division algorithm and the definition of a zero/root of a function rather than the Remainder Theorem as building blocks towards this generalization. Included are detailed solutions and commentary for the teacher.
