PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson plan and handout on rational exponents was created by me, Athena Leonardo, for an 11th/12th grade pre-calculus class, but is suitable for advanced algebra students as well. This 2-day lesson is inquiry-based and guides students to generalizing a procedure for simplifying an expression involving rational exponents. The only materials necessary to implement this lesson are these documents and a graphing calculator. The activity can be completed by individual students or small groups. By the end, students can answer the focus question "What does it mean to raise a number to a rational exponent?"

The progression and line of questioning in this task allows the student the time and space to really dig in and make powerful inferences that will be enduring understandings throughout their work with rational exponents. Kudos for a concise approach with meaningful results, and thank you for sharing your good work with us.
