Unit 5-1: Basic Polynomial Operations (Doc, PDF, Key)
Georgia Standards (Click to Expand)
MGSE9-12.A.APR.1 Add, subtract, and multiply polynomials; understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers in that they are closed under these operations.

Unit 5-2: Synthetic & Long Division (Doc, PDF, Key)
Georgia Standards (Click to Expand)
MGSE9-12.A.APR.6 Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms using inspection, long division, or a computer algebra system; write a(x)/b(x) in the form q(x) + r(x)/b(x), where a(x), b(x), q(x), and r(x) are polynomials with the degree of r(x) less than the degree of b(x).

Unit 5-3: Fundamental Theorem of Algebra (Doc, PDF, Key)
Georgia Standards (Click to Expand)

MGSE9-12.N.CN.9 Use the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra to find all roots of a polynomial equation

MGSE9-12.A.APR.3 Identify zeros of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeros to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.

MGSE9-12.F.IF.7c Graph polynomial functions, identifying zeros when suitable factorizations are available, and showing end behavior.

Unit 5-4: Polynomial Identities (Doc, PDF, Key)
Georgia Standards (Click to Expand)
MGSE9-12.A.SSE.2 Use the structure of an expression to rewrite it in different equivalent forms. For example, see x^4– y^4 as (x^2)^2 - (y^2)^2, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x^2 – y^2) (x^2 + y^2).

MGSE9-12.A.APR.4 Prove polynomial identities and use them to describe numerical relationships. For example, the polynomial identity (x^2 +y^2)^2 = (x^2 – y^2)^2 + (2xy)^2 can be used to generate Pythagorean triples.

Unit 5-5: Alternate Factoring Methods (Doc, PDF, Key)
Georgia Standards (Click to Expand)
MGSE9-12.A.APR.3 Identify zeros of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeros to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.

MGSE9-12.A.SSE.1a Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients, in context.

MGSE9-12.F.IF.7c Graph polynomial functions, identifying zeros when suitable factorizations are available, and showing end behavior.

Unit 5-6: Remainder&Rational Root Thrm. (Doc, PDF, Key)
Georgia Standard (Click to Expand)
MGSE9-12.A.APR.2 Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x – a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x – a) is a factor of p(x).

Georgia Standards (Click to Expand)
MGSE9-12.A.SSE.1 Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.

MGSE9-12.A.SSE.1a Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients, in context.

MGSE9-12.F.IF.7c Graph polynomial functions, identifying zeros when suitable factorizations are available, and showing end behavior.

MGSE9-12.A.SSE.1b Given situations which utilize formulas or expressions with multiple terms and/or factors, interpret the meaning (in context) of individual terms or factors.

MGSE9-12.F.IF.4 Using tables, graphs, and verbal descriptions, interpret the key characteristics of a function which models the relationship between two quantities. Sketch a graph showing key features including: intercepts; interval where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.

MGSE9-12.F.IF.7 Graph functions expressed algebraically and show key features of the graph both by hand and by using technology.
