SP #2: Unit E Concept 7: Graphing a polynomial and identifying all key parts



This problem is about Graphing Simple Quadratics. According to Mrs. Kirch's instructions, I went backwards from the zeroes/x-intercepts I came up with which, in turn, were used to get my factors and my polynomial after multiplying my factors together. My equation can tell me the end behavior of the graph and also my y-intercept by solving for 'y' when 'x=0.' Finally, referencing to what the multiplicities meant on a graph, I drew my graph. 

Be sure to understand what the number of multiplicities mean. (M1: Through, M2: Bounce, M3: Curve). Take notice that my graph follows my x-intercepts and my y-intercept. To check your answer, you can enter the polynomial into a graphing calculator.
