The goal of this unit is to help the students gain a conceptual understanding of rational exponents, relate them back to operations with rational numbers, and then using them in expressions. To begin, students make a list of their prior knowledge of exponents. I give them 2 minutes to make a list in pairs and then we compile a class list. Students then chart and graph the first seven ordered pairs in the warm up scenario Math Practice 2. The graph should be points without a curve running through them.

To get some quick practice with this let us try some examples Rational exponents worksheet algebra 1. We are going to evaluate these up by turning them into a radicals T exponent and radical expressions worksheet 1 simplify.
Exponents often can be simplified using a few basic properties, since exponents represent repeated multiplication. The basic structure of writing an exponent looks like where is defined as the base and is termed its exponent. For this instance, represents the number of times that the variable is multiplied by itself. When looking at numbers to various powers, the following table gives the numeric value of several numbers to various powers.
