This product contains guided notes with an answer key, a domino activity, and a worksheet with answer key on rational exponent rules. There are five parts to the guided notes. The first part is an investigation of rational exponents and the second part guides students on how to rewrite an expression in radical form to an expression with rational exponents. The third part instructs students to simplify expressions containing rational exponents and the fourth part combines all the rules of exponents. Lastly, part five contains 3 problems for students to complete on their own so teachers can have a quick assessment of the lesson. The worksheet contains 10 problems.
This domino activity covers rational exponents, zero power rule, negative exponents, and power to a power rule. There are a total of 32 problems. Each student or group (based on teacher discretion) gets a set of dominoes. Students need to find the one that says start and work that problem. Then, they have to match the problem with the correct answer. That “answer” domino contains the next problem, which then matches with its answer.
