We expanded on the use of rational exponents today, this time in the context of using them to solve equations.

A reminder: because I want you to be able to work through this chapter without relying on the calculator, we will have a daily Powers Quiz. I will choose 10 powers from the table you made on HW 5.1 and ask you to evaluate them **without using the calculator** in a brief, timed quiz. We will do this **every day** through the unit, and only your **highest grade** on any one quiz will be the one used in your Unit 5 grade.
