Below we have provided the Rational Functions and Their Graphs Group Activity. You will need to download these for the Activity. You will need to have the students count off by fours and assign them each a student number.
Rational Functions Group Activity Directions:
Each Group is Given a Rational Function and must:
- Find and locate the x- and y-intercepts
- Find the Domain and Range
- Find and graph Horizontal Asymptote and the Vertical Asymptote
- Graph the Functions
The project can be a race to see which team can complete the task first. It is meant to give a difficult concept a fun twist. After each leg of the relay students change numbers. 1 becomes 2, 2 becomes 3, 3 becomes 4, and 4 becomes 1. Have four races so that each student is required to perform each of the tasks. We have provided 5 functions so that you can spilt your class up into 5 groups of 4. If you have more than that no worries, two groups can do the same problem.
