Rational exponents are equivalent to radicals, therefore the shortcuts that we can use working with exponents extend to radicals as well. Today we discussed multiplying and dividing radical expressions.

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 reference table you made 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 4 grade.
