Make rational operations more exciting by having students design a hotel! Does not require much prep, and will take 2-3 class days depending on how creative students get with it. Students will need to apply properties of simplifying, multiplying,

CCSS:

Use this as an exit ticket or small-group discussion starter to encourage your Algebra 1 or Algebra 2 students to reflect on operations with rational expressions! Students should write 3-4+ full sentence answers.

Subjects:

Types:

A great classwork packet on breaking down radicals into a perfect square/prime number (simplest form!), adding and subtracting radical expressions that require simplification first, and finding perfect cubes as a brain-primer for simplifying cube

Subjects:

Types:

A packet that has multi-step word problems that require either factoring or using the quadratic formula to find the area of an expanded figure. PARCC-style Alg 1/Geo/Alg 2 questions. Can lend itself to a partner or group project if you have students

Types:

Students will work in groups to come up with marketable skills and a business model based on their skills. They can create a PowerPoint or poster with their business idea and data tables. This project requires students to use cost and revenue

Subjects:

Types:

A useful factoring review that allows students to compare methods when factoring a trinomial with a = 1, a > 1, and trinomials that require a GCF to be taken out first. Students check their work by using the quadratic formula, so this is an

Subjects:

Types:

A great group-work/class-work activity for students to begin once you have taught how to simplify rational expressions with various forms of factoring. This is a highly scaffolded packet that includes multiplying fractions with integers, examples

Types:

This is a more challenging rules of exponents packet that has a mixture of problems for students to apply the power rule, product rule, quotient rule, and others.

Subjects:

Types:

A 25-question test on rules of exponents and polynomial functions; I use this as my first unit test in Algebra 2. Mixture of very easy problems (adding polynomials) and more difficult applications (find all equivalent expressions). Requires

Subjects:

Types:

A multi-day project that requires students to write and graph polynomial functions, reflecting on real-world applications.

Types:

In this lesson, students are introduced to longer FOILing and the distributive property with 2 examples of more difficult polynomial expressions. Additionally, I break down what it means for a number to be a factor of another number, which primes

Subjects:

A one-page pre-read with two examples and additional application classwork/homework problems on finding a GCF and using it to factor out a polynomial expression. Answer key included. You can make this activity longer by having students check their

Subjects:

Types:

PowerPoint that includes warm-up sorting activity where students look at and sort polynomial expressions based on their operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division). The PPT then guides students into 3 examples where these

Subjects:

Two column guided notes that are easy to project and work through with students. Polynomial long division with and without placeholders in the dividend. Two-column method ensures students know what to subtract each step.

Subjects:

Types:

CCSS:

Color-coded, all-inclusive PPT lesson on simplifying rational expressions using various factoring methods. Includes multiple examples, an exit ticket, and a student-designed matching activity following the notes.

Subjects:

Students will be required to design a pool in this fun factoring project! They will be challenged to either factor with large numbers, or use the quadratic formula to calculate the area of a pool complex with each side expanded with a sidewalk or
