Students will improve the learning environment in the 11^{th}/12^{th} grade math room by creating (12″x 24″) acrylic ceiling tiles that show a challenging rational function. The tile will have a rational function provided by the teacher, students will have to show on the tile how to simplify the expression, how to find the zeros, how to find the asymptotes, how to find points of discontinuity, how to describe the end behavior of the function, and will have a graph of the function detailing all of those features. Students will be grouped into groups of 2-3 based on performance from a previous factoring unit. They will also create a rational equation with 2 rational expressions and at least 2 solutions, then show how to solve the equation, and explain the features of the rational function that results in solving the equation.
