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 correctly. Students should be able to solve equations, use synthetic division, use the quadratic formula, and solve problems using imaginary numbers.

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…

Graphing Polynomial Function Scavenger Hunt Activity - This walk around activity will help students practice identifying the key characteristics of polynomial functions and connecting those characteristics to graphs. Students begin the activity by choosing any one of the graphs posted around the classroom, and the equation of that graph will lead them to the next station.
