Lesson 3.1 Evaluate nth Root and Use rational Exponents pg 109110
GPS MM3A2a, MM3A2b, MM3A3d
Key Concept
You will find the nth root of a real number, evaluate expressions with rational exponents, and approximate roots with a calculator.
Questions to think about...
The volume of a cube with side length of x is 64 cubis inches. Use the trial error to find a number whose cube is 64. What is the length of the cube
Common Students Error...
When evaluating expressions with rational exponents, student may mistakenly interchange the numerator and denominator of the exponent.
Classwork: Example problems14, guided practice problems110
Homework: from your math book pg. 111 (234) EOE

Lesson 3.2Apply Properties of Rational Exponents
GPS MM3A2b
Goal: Simplify expressions involving rational exponents.
Key Concept:
The properties of rational exponents and radicals can be used simplify, add, and subtract expression involving variables.
Questions to think about...
How do you simplify (m^4)^5?
Common Student Error...
When simplifying expression involving radicals, students must multiply both the numerator and denominator of the expression by the same value.
Classwork: Examples 16, Guided Practice Problems 118
Homework: work from the math 3 book pg. 115 (224even) 10/31 p.115 (2634even) 11/1

Lesson 3.3Graph Square Root and Cube Root Functions
Goal: Graph square root and cube root functions.
GPS MM3A2d
Key Concept
The parent functions, y= square root of X and y= cube root of X, can be used to graph square root and cube root
Questions to think about...
Compare the two equations y=X^3 and y=(X3)^2 2, what is happen between them.
Common Student Error...
When graphing square root and cube functions, some students may shift the parent graph horizontally in the wrong direction.
Classwork: Examples 13, Guided Practice Problems
Homework: Math 3 book page 120(112)All

Lesson 3.4Solve Radical Equations
Goal: Solve radical equations.
GPS MM3A2d
Key Concept
To solve a radical equation, isolate the radical, raise each side of the equation to a power, and solve the resulting equation.
Questions to think about...
Simplify the following
sqaure root of 90
square root of 2 multiply by square root of 54
Common Student Error...
Students may attempt to raise both sides of an equation to the same power before isolating the radical.
