The procedure in multiplying rational expressions is very similar to multiplying rational numbers, commonly known as fractions. Students simply need to multiply the numerators and then divide by the product of the denominators. Finally, they will simplify the "new" rational expression by cancelling common factors between the numerator and denominator.
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 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.
