Little Black Book of Algebra II Properties Unit 7 - Polynomial Functions 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 I can select the appropriate factoring technique for a given polynomial I can use the Factor Theorem 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 I can use polynomial long division to divide polynomials I can use synthetic division when appropriate For the Little Black Book, put evidence that you have mastered each target.
