Title: Precalculus and Advanced Topics Module 3, Topic A: Polynomial Functions and the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra
URL: https://www.engageny.org/resource/precalculus-and-advanced-topics-module-3-topic-a-overview
Description:

Module 3, Topic A brings students back to the study of complex roots of polynomial functions.  Students briefly review quadratic and cubic functions and then extend familiar polynomial identities to both complex numbers and to general polynomial functions. Students use polynomial identities to find square roots of complex numbers. The binomial theorem and its relationship to Pascal’s Triangle are explored using roots of unity. The topic concludes with students’ use of Cavalieri’s principle to derive formulas for the volume of the sphere and other geometric solids.

Note: This module is identified as Precalculus and Advanced Topics in the EngageNY curriculum. It also corresponds to the Algebra II and Algebra II with Trigonometry Alabama Courses of Study.

Description:

In this instructional video and practice activity from Khan Academy, students will explore how the radii and the foci of an ellipse relate to each other and how this relationship can be used to find the foci from the equation of an ellipse. This video can be used during a lesson on solving systems of equations. The video is 13 minutes and 48 seconds in length and can be assigned through Google Classroom. There are practice problems included after the video.
