Lesson 25: Rational Exponents

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.
