This activity is a good review of understanding how to "Simplify Numbers with Rational Exponents" .

Students will be able to simplify numbers with rational exponents by:

☑ Rewriting the number using radicals (which is the focus of this maze)

Questions of this maze are:

☑ Raised to ¼, ¼, ⅓, and ⅕

☑ When multiplied and reduces, the answer is always an integer

Students should feel comfortable with:

☑ Changing Rational Exponents to Radicals (Check out this MAZE)

☑ Multiply radicals with the same indices

Please keep in mind that this maze focuses only on Simplifying Numbers with Rational Exponents and the intention is to switch the rational exponents to radicals and then simplify using a graphing calculator (or properties of exponents). Other rational exponents mazes are available through out my store. An answer sheet, optional, is provided for students to show work.

I allowed my students to use a graphing calculator in some classes while in others, I've asked students to alternate between using a graphing calculator and properties of exponents.

There are 15 radical equations provided in this maze. From start to end, the student will be able to answer ALL 15 questions out of the 15 provided to get to the end of the maze.

A "suggested" step by step answer key is provided in this activity

I use Algebra II Common Core Pearson Textbook. This activity works very well with Section 6.4: Rational Exponents

This maze could be used as: a way to check for understanding, a review, recap of the lesson, pair-share, cooperative learning, exit ticket, entrance ticket, homework, individual practice, when you have time left at the end of a period, beginning of the period (as a warm up or bell work), before a quiz on the topic, and more.

Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.
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. For example, we define 5 to the 1/3 power to be the cube root of 5 because we want (5 to the 1/3 power)³ = 5 to the (1/3)(3) power to hold, so (5 to the 1/3 power)³ must equal 5.
