This activity has students work in pairs to simplify polynomial functions after we apply simple operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division). Each student is given a card, either a f(x) or g(x) card (I colored coded my cards). They then must find a partner with the different function (f(x) people pair with g(x) people) and perform the indicated operation on their worksheet. Then the pair swap cards and find a new partner.
Materials: cards printed and cut ahead of time, Partner Activity worksheet.
Prep: just print and cut the cards before class
