Knowledge Targets
“What I need to
know!”
 I know how to identify polynomials and name them by terms and
degrees
 I know that the real roots of a function are the x-intercepts of the
graph
Reasoning Targets
“What I can do with
what I know.”
 I can describe the end behavior of polynomials using correct
notation
 I can recognize special factoring patterns, such as sum and
difference of cubes

Skill Targets
“What I can
demonstrate.”
 I can use factors of polynomials to make a number line model and
graph the function
 I can use a number line model and graphs to solve polynomial
inequalities and write the solution in interval and inequality
notation
 I can factor higher order polynomials, using methods such as sum
and difference of cubes and factoring by grouping
 I can use factoring to solve polynomial equations and inequalities
