It's a great day for students to learn about solving Rational Expressions with Like Denominators!
* In the following power point, students begin the lesson by making a comparison with other lessons previously learned and used in mathematics.
* Students explain in their own words how to add and subtract rational expressions
* Students learn that when subtracting rational expressions with like denominators, they must use parentheses around the terms in the numerator that follow the subtraction symbol in order to avoid careless error.
* Students learn to use the distributive property in solving rational expressions that involve subtraction.
* Students employ their knowledge with regards to factoring when they simplify rational expressions with like denominators.
* Students apply their newly learned material to a real life situation finding the Work (in joules) in a tennis ball volley.
* This lesson is aligned with CC Standards
* A follow up assessment is included in the lesson to provide students and teachers with immediate feed back as to how well the lesson is understood.
* GUIDED NOTES are included in the lesson to encourage active participation among students as the lesson is being presented; the guided notes are a useful tool for students in preparation for homework, quizzes, tests, and final exams, as well.
* I am confident that students will find the lesson engaging and manageable, while teachers should find the lesson practical and adaptable to their own curriculum.
