Classify polynomials through identification of degree and leading coefficient. Graph a polynomial function from a table of values; prove degree using successive differences.
Graph each of the functions in your graphing calculator:
You’ll notice your calculator will look like this:
What do these functions have in common? How are they different?
What is the degree of each of the functions shown in tables? Use a graph of the coordinate points to approximate the shape.
The following resources include problems and activities aligned to the objective of the lesson that can be used to create your own problem set.
Given the table of values below:
