TODAY IN ALGEBRA…  Learning Target: 8.3 You will use properties of exponents involving zero and negative exponents  Exit Task  HW#2 Due Today  Mid Ch.8 Test-Monday/Tuesday  Practice Test

8.3 ZERO AND NEGATIVE EXPONENTS EXPONENT PROPERTIES WITH ZERO AND NEGATIVES POWER IS ZERO RECIPROCAL: NEGATIVE ON TOP To the zero power always equals 1! RECIPROCAL: NEGATIVE ON BOTTOM

8.3 ZERO AND NEGATIVE EXPONENTS

EXPONENT PROPERTIES WITH ZERO AND NEGATIVES POWER IS ZERO RECIPROCAL: NEGATIVE ON TOP To the zero power always equals 1! RECIPROCAL: NEGATIVE ON BOTTOM Switch exponent to the bottom to make it positive!

8.3 ZERO AND NEGATIVE EXPONENTS *cannot have zero in the denominator!

8.3 ZERO AND NEGATIVE EXPONENTS EXPONENT PROPERTIES WITH ZERO AND NEGATIVES POWER IS ZERO RECIPROCAL: NEGATIVE ON TOP To the zero power always equals 1! RECIPROCAL: NEGATIVE ON BOTTOM Switch exponent to the bottom to make it positive! Switch exponent to the top to make it positive!
