Do you like roller coasters?

If you were asked to design a roller coaster, what would it look like? Would it have steep hills? Would you design the tracks to go upside down?

Did you know that polynomial equations are used by the structural engineers who design roller coasters to represent their roller coaster design?

In this lesson, you will experiment with different polynomials of various degrees to create your very own roller coaster! You will have the opportunity to collaborate with another student on this activity.

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

Classify polynomials by degree and by number of terms.

Graph polynomials using graphing technology.
