Subject: Mathematics (9  12), or Technology Education (9  12) Title: Family Ties: Parabolas
Description: This lesson allows students to manipulate the parameters while using the vertex form of the equation of a parabola to see the effects on the graph. The spreadsheet can be altered for other functions.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science University, GEMSU Project.
Subject: Mathematics (9  12), or Technology Education (9  12) Title: Who am I? Find A Polynomial From Its Roots
Description: Students analyze the roots and end behavior of a polynomials and write the equation of a polynomial under given conditions. Students apply theorems concerning the multiplicity of roots, conjugates of irrational or complex imaginary roots to find a polynomial under given conditions. Students will factor polynomials to find the complex roots. Students graph polynomials and determine the local extrema. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
