Celebrate St. Patrick's Day and give students the practice they need at evaluating expressions with rational exponents and graphing with this Math-Then-Graph Activity.
Students are given a list of coordinate points to plot. Some of the points are incomplete. The students need to evaluate each expression by raising the base to a rational exponent to complete each points. Then the students should connect the completed coordinate points only within the designated zones. When they are done, they will have graphed a very festive picture of a Pot O' Gold.

helps out, but any graph paper will do.
