# Rational Exponents and Radicals Worksheet

## What are Rational Exponents?

Rational Exponents are also called fractional exponents. As we know, These are expressions that have a rational number as their exponents. Their exponents are fractions, where the numerator is a power and the denominator is a root.

In mathematics, radicals are actually mathematical signs in a radical equation. An equation that is inside a radical is known as a radical equation. An expression that lies inside a square root is known as a radical expression. Radicals are related to roots.

This worksheet contains lectures and activities about rational exponents and radicals. The lectures will help the learner in understanding the concepts and steps in converting an expression into its radical form and exponential form.

The activity that will be answered by the learner will assess their understanding regarding the lectures. In addition to this, they can also practice their math skills in the activities.

## Instructions on how to use the “Rational Exponents and Radicals Worksheet”

In the first part, there will be a discussion regarding the concept and process of rational exponents and radicals. There will be also an example of the step-by-step process of how we convert an expression into its radical form and exponential form.

After the discussion, an activity will be provided for the learner to apply their learning to the discussion. This part will practice the learners’ skills, comprehension, and evaluation.

Towards the end, a reflective section is provided to help the learner think about their thinking (metacognition) and assess how they performed in the lesson.

## Conclusion

Learning what are radicals and rational exponents is important. In real life, these are used to compute interest, depreciation, inflation, in scientific equations, and many more. Hence, this worksheet is a good preparation as you learn more about radicals, rational exponents, and other algebra topics.
