We also looked at order of operations. The students also had a chance to look at their quiz from last class. Puzzle 48: Tax Collector
We introduced what are rational exponents. We looked at how to evaluate (simplify) and how to use exponent laws for rational exponents. Handout for more practice for integral exponents. Practice: Chapter 4.3 Page 72 # 19 Quiz 1 completed today.
