These READY TO PRINT task cards are a fun way for students to practice simplifying rational expressions. The VERSATILITY gives tons of options for use in your classroom!
There are 32 cards in this set. Problems are of various difficulty. All problems require simplifying the rational expression and finding the restrictions on the domain. Problem types include: multiplying and dividing, adding and subtracting with like denominators, and adding and subtracting with unlike denominators. This was created for an honors level class, but could be easily adapted to a regular level course. Students could be placed in partners and solve the problems together for cooperative learning.
- Stations – Place 2-3 cards at each station and have students move in partners or groups from station to station.
- Scoot Game – Place one numbered card on each student desk. It’s helpful if the desks are moved into a circle. Have students start at their own desk, solving the problem on the card and recording their answer on the answer sheet. Students move to the next desk when the teacher says, “Scoot!”. When everyone has gone through all of the problems, go over the solutions as a class.
- Marker Board Review – Put task cards under a projector and have students work the problem on their marker board.
- Daily Warm-Ups – 1-2 task cards could be used per day as a warm-up.
- Speed Mathing – Arrange desks in two rows (like speed dating). Each student receives a card, works the problems on the card, checks their answer. Then, the students trade cards with their partner sitting across from them and work the problem on the new card. They are now sitting across the “expert” for that problem. After a few minutes, the students receive their original cards again and one row moves one seat down. This process continues until all of the cards are completed.
