Cubic Polynomials – Factorise and Sketch

Another great task from Mr Cooke @HolyroodsecM. This one brings together the basic idea of dividing a cubic polynomial by a factor to be able to find other roots and make a sketch. Later in the task pupils are given the diagram and have to work backwards. This makes use of the formula y = k(x-a)(x-b) etc.
