Simplifying Rational Expressions - Golf Game:

This is a fun way to work through practice problems with rational expressions. (Polynomials in numerator and denominator - requires factoring)

Students "play" each hole on the course (5 hole-worksheet) by pulling a "driver" card, then an "iron" and then as many "putter" cards as necessary to sink the ball (get one right).

Each card has a rational expression that must be simplified. The golf worksheet has room for work, answers, and scores. A correct answer is 1 stroke. An incorrect answer lands your ball in the sand/water/etc. and forces you to add a stroke.

Some special cards give chances to get a "birdie" by answering a challenging problem correctly. The student then hits directly onto the green. He/she can then skip the iron card and go straight to putting.

Check out the preview file for more details.

Understand that rational expressions form a system analogous to the rational numbers, closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by a nonzero rational expression; add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions.
Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write π’(πΉ)/π£(πΉ) in the form π²(πΉ) + π³(πΉ)/π£(πΉ), where π’(πΉ), π£(πΉ), π²(πΉ), and π³(πΉ) are polynomials with the degree of π³(πΉ) less than the degree of π£(πΉ), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.
