Day 32: Rational Monster


Okay, I admit, this is a challenging Opener problem…and I suggested to my students that they should be able to finish the problem in approx. 7 minutes.  Aren’t I demanding?!  They thought so.  But I used the problem to talk about efficiency when approaching an intense problem like this as well as the need for a clearly defined approach that always works.  It was a wonderful opportunity to help students improve their mathematical habits of mind as well as clarify and deepen their understanding of the various attributes of the rational function.  All in all, a great day in Precalculus.
