This activity allows students to practice adding, subtracting, multiplying, factoring, simplifying, and classifying polynomial expressions.
Prior to the activity, the problem pages should be posted around the classroom or in the hallway. Each student or group should be given a copy of the answer sheet. Assign each student a problem from which to begin. Students should write down the problem and simplify the expression(s). After simplifying, students should classify the polynomial. The classification will lead the student to his/her next problem. When the student returns to his/her original problem, the activity is complete.
