|Rational Functions - Every time you do this, a kitten dies.|
I've blogged about using this in a lesson before here.
This year, to build anticipation and provoke curiosity, I hung this poster up in my classroom a couple of weeks before our unit on rationals. Of course, my Algebra 1 kiddos ended up asking the most questions about it, and I had to explain that it was an Algebra 2 thing. They hate when I tell them that something is for another class.
I make a really big deal whenever someone kills a cat and I have to change the count. And, the kids are always watching to make sure I accurately update the count each day.
Here's the file if you want to play along.
And, for the record, two cat posts in a row is just a coincidence. Promise.
