I use relays to review a lot of different subjects in my classes. This one reviews working with rational exponents. It includes problems were expressions with rational exponents are multiplied, divided, and/or raised to powers. Negative and zero exponents are also included.
Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!
It includes instructions of how to use the Scavenger Hunt, a worksheet that students can use to record their answers, and a homework worksheet that reviews the same subject.

Common Core Standards:
Extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents.
N-RN 1. 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 51/3 to be the cube root of 5 because we want (51/3)3 = 5(1/3)3 to hold, so (51/3)3 must equal 5.
N-RN 2. Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.
