Student Outcomes

  • Students use the factored form of a quadratic equation to construct a rough graph, use the graph of a quadratic equation to construct a quadratic equation in factored form, and relate the solutions of a quadratic equation in one variable to the zeros of the function it defines.
  • Students understand that the number of zeros in a polynomial function corresponds to the number of linear factors of the related expression and that different functions may have the same zeros but different maxima or minima.
