Students will find all zeros of 10 different polynomial functions. They will then match their answer to a characteristic of the snowman and color him

For the minimal polynomial of an algebraic element of a field, see Minimal polynomial (field theory). In linear algebra, the minimal polynomial μA of an n × n matrix A over a field F is the monic polynomial P over F of least degree such that P(A) = 0. Any other polynomial Q with Q(A) = 0 is a (polynomial) multiple of μA. The following three statements are equivalent: λ is a root of μA, λ is a root of the characteristic polynomial χA of A, λ is an eigenvalue of matrix A. The…
