Slides designed to help teach how to multiply radicals.  A total of 8 slides with space to illustrate and write during the lesson and the file you download contains a jpeg, PDF, and power point file.

Explain how the definition of the meaning of rational exponents follows from extending the properties of integer exponents to those values, allowing for a notation for radicals in terms of rational exponents. For example, we define 51/3 to be the cube root of 5 because we want (51/3)3 = 5(1/3)3 to hold, so (51/3)3 must equal 5.

Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.
