• According to our curriculum map, we are beginning Radicals and Exponential Expressions!

    Standards in this unit include:

    • MAFS.912.N-RN.1.1
      • Explain how the definition of the meaning of rational exponents follows from extending the properties of integer exponents to those values, allowing for a notation for radicals in terms of rational exponents. For example, we define to be the cube root of 5 because we want = to hold, so must equal 5.
    •  MAFS.912.N-RN.1.2
      • Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.

    We do not have access to the text book outside of the classroom and so I will create powerpoints and worksheets to learn and apply these standards as well as the following topics from the curriculum map:

    • radical and rational exponents
    • simplifying radical expressions
    • adding/subtracting radical expressions
    • multiplying radical expresions
