## Algebra 2

### Powers Roots and Radical Functions

This unit begins with a graphical approach to the investigation of power functions. The first lessons in this unit explore the shapes and end behaviors of power functions with different exponents. Additional activities investigate the relationships among inverses of power functions, solutions to radical equations with potential extraneous solutions, and applications of power functions.
