Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions - This resource includes two sets of 20 task cards (40 task cards total) to help students practice how to add and subtract rational expressions with like and unlike denominators. This activity includes problems with different levels of difficulty which is perfect for differentiation and a great tool to challenge your Algebra students.
For each set, the first 12 cards contain problems where the denominators are the same while the next 8 cards have problems with different denominators. The types of denominators in the rational expressions being added or subtracted include numbers, monomials, binomials, and trinomials.
Engage students by using these task cards in various ways such as in math stations and/or math centers, for whole class discussion/review, meaningful homework, and for daily warm ups.
I also created two versions of recording sheets for you. You may choose the version that works best for your students depending on the amount of space they need to show their solutions.
*Version 1 – use this if you would like your students to simply record their answers on a single page. You may ask them to show their solutions on separate sheets of paper.
*Version 2 – use this if you would like your students to show detailed solutions on how they arrived at their answers.
Answer keys are also provided!
I truly hope that this resource can help your students succeed in math. If you have any questions or concerns about this product, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I sincerely appreciate your support!
