Simplifying & solving algebraic fractionsPresentation Transcript

• SIMPLIFYING & SOLVING ALGEBRAIC FRACTIONS
• MATH PROJECT: SIMPLIFYING & SOLVING ALGEBRAIC FRACTIONS
• Summary:
• Explore resources available on the internet relating to algebraic fractions.
• Make a publication that explains the processes used in simplifying and solving algebraic fractions.
• Practice with interactive problems and take an online quiz.
• Make a flip camera video that will be used by other students in our school system for enrichment and review.
• NORTH CAROLINA STANDARDS & OBJECTIVES
• 1.01 Simplify and perform operations with rational exponents and logarithms (common and natural) to solve problems.
• 1.03 Operate with algebraic expressions (polynomial, rational, complex fractions) to solve problems.
• 2.05 Use rational equations to model and solve problems; justify results.
• Solve using tables, graphs, and algebraic properties.
• Interpret the constants and coefficients in the context of the problem.
• Identify the asymptotes and intercepts graphically and algebraically.
• 2.07 Use equations with radical expressions to model and solve problems; justify results.
• Solve using tables, graphs, and algebraic properties.
• Interpret the degree, constants, and coefficients in the context of the problem.
• TARGETED STUDENT OBJECTIVES & LEARNING OUTCOMES
• Subtracting algebraic fractions.
• Multiplying algebraic fractions.
• Dividing algebraic fractions.
• Solve problems by using rational equations.
• CURRICULUM-FRAMING QUESTIONS
• Essential Question
• How can math help me understand my world?
• Unit Questions
• How can mathematical patterns be used to solve real world scenarios?
• Why do we need to know how to operate with algebraic fractions?
• How do we use algebraic fractions in the real world?
• Content Questions
• How do we change words to math problems?
• How do we perform basic operations with algebraic fractions?
• 21 ST CENTURY LEARNING
• Students will develop higher-order and 21 st Century Skills in this unit as they:
• Use the Essential and Unit Questions to guide their analysis of algebraic fractions to find strategies to use in simplifying and solving problems..
• Communicate their ideas to a community audience through a publication and a video.
• Reflect on their reading, writing, research and thinking strategies, and modify and adapt them as necessary to fit the real-world scenarios.
• Use project assessments to self-assess their work.
• ASSESSMENT TIMELINE
