Excited to share this power point on "Simplifying Rational Expressions with GUIDED NOTES"
* Students begin the lesson with a review of key terms, explaining in their own words and giving examples.
* Students note similarities and differences between rational numbers and rational expressions.
* Students explain how background experiences in mathematics will assist them in the current lesson.
* Students learn that terms are NOT divided out when simplifying rational expressions
* Students learn about and give examples for "OPPOSITE" binomial factors.
* Students learn how to adjust prime binomial factors to enable them to divide out for simplification of a rational expression.
* Students apply their newly learned concepts to a real life situation where Breitling Orbiter 3 made history as it caught the jet-stream and circled the earth via balloon in only 20 days, non-stop, for the first time ever.
* Students learn to simplify rational expressions that are presented verbally.
* This power point is CC aligned.
* Included in the lesson is a "Follow-up Assessment" to determine student understanding of the presented material.
* Also included is a set of GUIDED NOTES to encourage active student participation in the lesson presentation and for use in preparing for quizzes, tests, and final exams.
^ I am confident that students will find the lesson manageable, as well as enjoyable, while instructors should find the lesson practical and easily adaptable to their curriculum.
* Please enjoy!
