Product is in both pdf and MS Word forms.
This product includes a set of factored rational expressions, a set of non-factored rational expressions, two graphic organizers to organize student work with simplifying and finding restrictions, and answers.
The materials are designed to help students understand the meaning of restrictions and when they need to be found (before cancelling factors).
The materials provide differentiation for your classroom. If the students are not yet adept at factoring quadratic expressions, they are given the factored rational expressions with the appropriate graphic organizer. If the students are good at factoring quadratic expressions, they are given the non-factored rational expressions with the appropriate graphic organizer.
The students may also be given the answers as they are in random order and the students can check them off as they arrive at the answers.
