Product DescriptionHave you seen the preview??
My kids ♥ loved ♥ this activity and ✭ approved of it ✭. Hopefully yours will find it enjoyable and helpful as well :-) In some classes I ran this activity in class while in others I assigned it at home as a homework. In both cases, students ❤ LOVED ❤ it.
In Classroom Scavenger Hunt OPTION
In the classroom version, this activity will allow students to move around the room. There are 16 cards with 16 different problems assessing the understanding of Multiplying and Dividing Rational Expressions.
In this hunt, several models of Rational Expressions are assessed:
☑ The numerator maybe: Monomial, Binomial, or Trinomial
☑ The denominator may be: Monomial, Binomial, or Trinomial
☑ Includes Opposite binomials factors
☑ Several factoring techniques are assessed including factoring GCF and Different of two squares, and Perfect Square Trinomial
Please note that Complex Fractions are not part of this scavenger hunt. Version 2 of this scavenger hunt contains such model
In some cases, students are asked to factor every polynomial of the two rational expressions. Students will feel EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE with multiplying and Dividing Rational Expressions after playing this game as they will be able to clear any misconception about this topic.
♥ ♥ Please take a look at the preview to see what type of questions this product focuses on before purchasing. I truly hope that you find this product beneficial to your students. My Algebra II students loved it as it engaged them in so many GREAT conversations. ♥ ♥
I have included 2 options of the recording sheet:
☑ OPTION 1: A blank recording sheet as students would need to copy down the questions while hunting
☑ OPTION 2: Questions are listed on this recording sheet. Students would not need to copy down the questions while hunting.
This activity maybe used as a review before an assessment on this concept. Students will feel better after this activity as they understand the concept better while working as a team.
❤❤❤My students told me that working in groups for this particular activity was extremely helpful as it build up confident since I asked them to do the questions individually and then check with their group members.❤❤❤
How to play?
After you assign the first card, students will locate the card around the room and answer the question on the card. Then, after solving the question with their partner (or group or individually), student will find the answer as it is placed on another card around the room. Then, student will answer the question on that card repeating the process. Students will utilize the Scavenger Hunt Answer form to keep a record of their answers as well as their sequence. I will strongly encourage that student show work and attach it to the answer form.
I have attached a visual organizer of the findings which would help in checking out the sequence quickly. It is an "A"wesome card which could be given to every student. You may choose to print 1 per page or 4 per page. Both printing options are included in this product.
This activity is a great tool for differentiation. It could be used as a review before a quiz or a test on this topic, TASK CARDS, Cooperative Learning, ... et .. It is a great way of "Cooperative Learning". It also could be used as a formative assessment.
In addition to the Scavenger Hunt file, you'll find an answer form to be used by students as well as an answer key. Don't forget to check the preview.
At Home OR Stations Scavenger Hunt OPTION
This is a new strategy that I have been using in my classroom which allows for differentiation. I have included the scavenger hunt in a small size with an organizational bulletin and a small 'A'wesome Card. Students will simply take the scavenger hunt at home and do it instead of a homework or as an extra credit. Please visit the preview to see some pictures of the final product when completed with this option. My students have enjoyed this option and thought it was fun. I hope that your students will love it as well.
