This activity is a good review of understanding how to "Simplify Numbers with Rational Exponents" .
☑ Rewriting the number using radicals (which is the of this maze)
☑ Raised to ¼, ¼, ⅓, and ⅕
☑ When multiplied and reduces, the answer is always an integer
☑ 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.
