This is a BINGO-based activity for students to practice simplifying rational expressions. This activity is intended to be completed without the use of a calculator. The students will practice recognizing how the rational exponent is connected to the root. This activity will help students increase their speed in recognizing this connection and simplifying mentally.
Not only will students practice simplifying rational expressions, but they will work in groups of 2-3 students, be physically active and move around the room. The students will be able to have fun while learning.
When I used this in my own classroom, I was hesitant to ask my students to be physically active as I thought they would not willingly participate. I was pleasantly surprised at how much my students enjoyed the activity and have continued to request to do an activity like this again.
