# Q2 W5 Nov 11-15 Algebra 1

Teacher Stephanie Durrance Algebra I Honors 7th/8th 5 UNIT 6: Exponential and Radical Functions
Standard(s) Taught
 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. MAFS.912.N-RN.1.2: Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents. MAFS.912.N-RN.2.3: Explain why the sum or product of two rational numbers is rational; that the sum of a rational number and an irrational number is irrational; and that the product of a nonzero rational number and an irrational number is irrational.

MAFS.912.A-CED.1.1: Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• apply properties of exponents to simplify algebraic expressions with integer and rational exponents. • evaluate and simplify expressions containing zero and integer exponents. • multiply monomials and apply multiplication properties of exponents to evaluate and simplify expressions. • rewrite equivalent expressions between radicals and rational exponents.

• recall rational and irrational numbers. • explain why the sum of two rational numbers is rational. • explain why the product of two rational numbers is rational. • explain why the sum of a rational and irrational number is irrational • explain why the product of a nonzero rational and irrational number is irrational.
