Students will be given a cubic and one of its roots. Then, students will use polynomial long division to partially factor the cubic. Next, students will use their ability to factor quadratics to complete the factorization. After that, students will plot the roots of the quadratic on the coordinate plane. Finally, students will analyze the end behavior of the original cubic, in order to graph it.
