Lesson 25: Rational Exponents

Topic(s):

Using Kleiber's rule- which linked an animals metabolic rate to its mass- to motivate working with rational exponents, this lesson begins by linking work with $n$th roots from the last lesson to working with powers of $n$th roots. Rational exponents are linked with radical expressions, and then operations and equations with rational exponents are presented.
