This product has 6 non-simplified rational expressions that can be simplified by factoring out common factors and an organizer/workspace.
There are two tables with three problems in each. The non-simplified expressions are in bold among factors and answers.
The students first find a non-simplified rational expression, fully factor the numerator and denominator, find their factors in the table (as a way of checking their work), "cancel" common factors, and find their answer in the table (as a way of checking their work).
My students liked this activity!
