- Understanding Rational Expressions - A rational expression is any polynomial divided by any polynomial except for zero. If your students don't already know, dividing by zero is catastrophic. In fact, many esteemed mathematicians believe the apocalypse will result from dividing by zero. Students should understand that rational expressions are closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
