This is an interesting problem that approaches higher degree polynomials from a different perspective. Given a third degree polynomial, two known zeros, and a y-intercept, find the value of the polynomialÕs coefficients. This problem challenges the learner to gain a deeper understanding of zeros, graphs of polynomials, factors, and the algebra behind multiplying polynomials. This problem has a number of correct solutions, but that is what makes it challenging and still within the reach of a second-year algebra student.
