Do Now 9/7/10 Copy HW in your planner.  Text p. 5-7, #4-52 multiples of 4 In your journal, answer the following question. How do you evaluate algebraic expressions and powers? Then solve the example, when n = 4.

Objective SWBAT evaluate algebraic expressions and use exponents

Section 1.1 “Evaluate Expressions” VARIABLE a letter used to represent one or more numbers. a e m k y s t

substitute a number for each variable, perform the operations and simplify, if necessary. To EVALUATE AN ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSION- Substitute 3 for n. Multiply. = 39 13 n = 13 3

Subtract. = 2 Substitute 3 for n. = 3 Divide. Evaluate the expression when n = 3. 9 3 a. 9 n = b. n – 1 = 3 – 13 – 1 Substitute 2 for y. Multiply. = 12 Evaluate the expression when y = 2. c. 6 y = 6 2 Add. = 6 Substitute 2 for y.. d. y + 4 = 2 + 4

POWER an expression that represents repeated multiplication. 2 4 BASE EXPONENT Product Words two to the fourth power

GUIDED PRACTICE Evaluate the expression. 1. x 3 when x = 8 1. x 3 = 8 3 = 512 = (2.5)(2.5)(2.5) = 15.625 = 8 8 8 2. k 3 = 2.5 3 2. k 3 when k = 2.5 3. d 4 when d = 1 3 3. d 4 = ( ) 1 3 4 = 1 3 1 3 1 3 1 3 = 1 81
