Exponents 2626 Base Exponent The exponent is sometimes referred to as the power. Take notes in your spiral – 2 nd section This would be called 2 to the 6 th power. Title

What is the meaning of 2 6 ? 2 6 means to multiply the base 2 by itself 6 times.

The meaning of the exponent: 1.) 2 6 = Or 222222 2.) 2 3 = Or 222 3.) 2 2 = Or 22 2 to the sixth power 2 to the third power Or 2 cubed 2 to the second power Or 2 squared

The meaning of the exponent: 1.) 5 2 = 2.) 3 3 = 3.) 2 4 = 4.) 6 3 5.) 9 2 = 6.) 1 7 = 7.) 4 3 = 8.) 7 2 = 9.) 8 3 10.) 11 2 =

The meaning of the exponent: 4.) 4 0 = 1 If 8/4 = 2, then we can say that 2 3 / 2 2 = 2 1. So if 4/4 = 1,we can say that 2 2 / 2 2 = 2 0, therefore 2 0 must EQUAL 1. 5.) 4 -1 = 1/4

Fill-in the chart 1.) 2 4 = 2.) 2 3 = 8 3.) = 4 4.) 2 1 = 5.) 2 0 = 6.) 2 -1 = 7.) 2 -2 = 1/4 8.) 2 -3 = As the exponent gets smaller, what do you notice about the answer?

Fill - in the chart 1.) 2 4 = 16 2.) 2 3 = 8 3.) 2 2 = 4 4.) 2 1 = 2 5.) 2 0 = 1 6.) 2 -1 = 1/2 7.) 2 -2 = 1/4 8.) 2 -3 = 1/8

Evaluate the following expressions with exponents 2.) 15 + x 2 when x = 5 15 + 5 2 15 + 5 5 15 + 25 = 40

Evaluate the following expressions with exponents 3.) (3a + 6b) 2 when a = 1 & b = 2 (3(1) + 6(2)) 2 (3 + 12) 2 (15) 2 225

Evaluate the following expressions with exponents 4.) 2x 3 and (2x) 3 when x = 4 2(4 3 ) and (24) 3 2(64) and (8) 3 128 and 512

Closure 1.) What’s the difference between an expression and an equation? 2.) What the difference between a term and a factor?

Closure - Name the following What’s this?
