Geogebra Investigation – Roots of Multiplicity Ext 2 Polynomials

Rather than just guide my students down the garden path tommorow when we are starting the Polynomials Topic for Extension 2 Mathematics I have prepared a guded investigation in Geogebra that encourages them to make their own conjectures about roots of multiplicity and polynomials. Hopefully it will jolt their brains back into gear after the summer break (Yes I know it is still holidays – but we miss the first doulbe period of Ext 2 in Week 1 and I can’t get behind (besides they wanted to come in and promised me coffee!).  It will be interesting to see how this goes – Coffs High students don’t like not being told the answer straignt away! 🙂
