This activity will have students working in pairs to simplify multiplication and division of rational expressions. Students should be proficient in factoring of polynomials.
Students will have 15 problems to simplify. They will each have a different set of 15 problems. However, the answers to those 15 problems will be exactly the same. So, the assignment should be self checking in that if their answers differ, then they need to work together to figure out who made the mistake.
An answer key is provided.
