Reflection: Advanced Students Simplifying Expressions - Fluency Practice - Section 2: Explore


This unit is one that I teach to both my regular and advanced classes, but I try to step up the rigor for the advanced kids a bit so that they are challenged.  For this activity, I made Advanced Problem Cards which included practice working with a variety of rational coefficients.  I plan to work with fraction and decimal coeffecients with my other students as well, but I feel like they need to get the concept of simplifying down before I complicate it with fractions and decimals :)  Check out attached Student Work and Advanced Student Work.
