**Title:** Rational Exponents Rock!!

**Description:**
During this lesson, students will be introduced to rational exponents. Rational exponents are fractional powers, or where a number is raised to a fraction.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] AL1 (9-12) 1:

^{1/3}to be the cube root of 5 because we want (5

^{1/3})

^{3}= 5

^{(1/3)}

^{3}to hold, so (5

^{1/3})

^{3}must equal 5.

**Title:** You Mean ANYTHING To The Zero Power Is One?

**Description:**
This lesson is a technology-based project to reinforce concepts related to the Exponential Function. It can be used in conjunction with any textbook practice set. Construction of computer models of several Exponential Functions will promote meaningful learning rather than memorization.

**Title:** Stacking Squares

**Description:**
This Illuminations lesson prompts students to explore ways of arranging squares to represent equivalences involving square- and cube-roots. Students explanations and representations (with their various ways of finding these roots) form the basis for further work with radicals.
