Roots of polynomials and their connections
In the study of mathematics, one of the most useful, relevant topics explored in secondary mathematics remains the zeros of polynomials. This paper will present various ways to explore this topic while preserving the fundamental concept as a whole. In addition, this paper will reveal some distinct relationships between roots and their behavior within the different branches of mathematics. The purpose of this paper is to show how this topic can be inserted at key points in the developmental curriculum to preserve the autonomy of this vital mathematical concept, allowing students to experience the behavior and value of this topic in a variety of contexts.
