Q2 W6 Nov 18-22 Algebra 1

TeacherStephanie Durrance
Subject AreaAlgebra I Honors
Grade Level7th/8th
Week #6
Unit of InstructionUNIT 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.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• apply properties of exponents to simplify algebraic expressions with rational exponents. • explain why equivalent expressions are equivalent. • apply the properties of exponents

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.
