Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.


General Information

Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 912
Domain-Subdomain: Number & Quantity: The Real Number System
Cluster: Extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents. (Algebra 1 - Major Cluster) (Algebra 2 - Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

Formative Assessments

Name Description
Rational Exponents - 4

Students are asked to rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents in equivalent forms.

Rational Exponents - 2

Students are asked to convert numerical expressions from exponential to radical form.

Rational Exponents - 3

Students are asked to convert a product of a radical and exponential expression to a single power of two.

Rational Exponents - 1

Lesson Plans

Name Description
Simply Radical!

Students will rewrite radical expressions that can be simplified to one term and perform operations on radical expressions. They will solve problems in a Row-by-Row activity. Pairs of students work on different problems at different complexity levels that lead to the same solution. The students will challenge each other to prove their solutions are correct. This activity does not address rational exponents.

Manipulating Radicals

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to:

  • Use the properties of exponents, including rational exponents, and manipulate algebraic statements involving radicals.
  • Discriminate between equations and identities.

There is also an opportunity to consider the role of the imaginary number Syntax  error  from  line  1  column  49  to  line  1  column  73.  Unexpected  'mathsize'., but this is optional.

Rational or Irrational?

This makes for a good follow-up task on rational irrational numbers after the students have been acquainted with some of the more basic properties, asking students to reason about rational and irrational numbers (N-RN.3) in a variety of ways. In addition to eliciting several different types of reasoning, the task requires students to rewrite radical expressions in which the radicand is divisible by a a perfect square.
