Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

Students are given the factored form of a cubic polynomial and are asked to use the zeros to sketch the graph between two given points on the coordinate plane without the use of technology.
Students are asked to identify the zeros of cubic polynomials, without the use of technology, and then describe what the zeros indicate about the graph.

In this tutorial, students will look at input and output values of quadratic functions to help them understand why the graph of a second degree polynomial curves.
Type: Tutorial
This tutorial will help the learners practice division of polynomials. Students will recognize that dividing polynomials is similar to simplifying fractions.

Virtual Manipulatives
With a mouse, students will drag data points (with their error bars) and watch the bestfit polynomial curve form instantly. Students can choose the type of fit: linear, quadratic, cubic, or quartic. Best fit or adjustable fit can be displayed.
Type: Virtual Manipulative
This interactive simulation investigates graphing linear and quadratic equations. Users are given the ability to define and change the coefficients and constants in order to observe resulting changes in the graph(s).
