# Row game: simplify rational expressions

1 March 2015 Update: get the Word version of this file without the Scribd membership from my Google Drive.

Here’s a contribution to Kate Nowak’s row games collection. I played with the page layout so a pair of students could collaborate on a single sheet of paper. For the uninitiated, a row game is played by two students. They solve separate problems that have the same answer. It’s a collaborative event because when their answers don’t match, the kids have to work together to find the error in each other’s work. (After a quick look from Player B’s POV, I realize the questions are numbered right to left. Wonder how many kids will be bothered by that?)

Standards alignment: Georgia Performance Standard MM1A2d Students will simplify and operate with radical expressions, polynomials, and rational expressions. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions.
