Solutions to Polynomial Equations

Take a step back to Algebra II. The first instructional activity in a series of 23 asks scholars to remember working with quadratic equations with complex solutions. Pupils apply polynomial identities to complex numbers and work examples that show how the fundamental theorem of algebra applies to solutions of quadratic equations.
