This product contains guided notes with an answer key 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.
