We did some more review for tomorrow’s quiz.

**Today’s Files**

We did some more practice with simplifying complex fractions today with a fun activity (or I hope it was!). We will have a quiz on complex fractions and operations with rational expressions in general on **Tuesday, November 5. **Your homework tonight is the first quiz review sheet.

We did some more work with Complex Fractions today. Work on the additional practice problems tonight; your first Homework Quiz will be in class tomorrow!

We’ve moved on to the next phase of the rational expressions unit: Complex Fractions. Don’t be intimidated by their name! These are expressions that involve “nested fractions,” meaning the numerator and denominator of the expression are both fractions (or a sum/difference of fractions) themselves.

Remember the basic process for simplifying these beastly expressions:

- Combine fractions in the numerator (finding a lowest common denominator and so on) so you have one single rational expression
- Combine fractions in the denominator (LCD, etc.)
**Keep** the top fraction, **flip** the bottom fraction, and **change** the operation to multiplication (KFC)
- Simplify.
