Students will review:
This chapter helps students review the concepts in an exponents unit of a standard high school math course. Topics covered include:
- Using scientific notation
- Identifying the five main exponent properties
- Defining zero and negative exponents
- Simplifying expressions with exponents
- Simplifying expressions with rational exponents
- Simplifying power of powers
1. Scientific Notation: Definition and Examples
Scientific notation is a special way of writing numbers so they are easier to work with. This lesson will define scientific notations and show some examples of how to convert numbers from standard notation to scientific notation and back.
2. How to Define a Zero and Negative Exponent
The zero and negative exponent properties are two you will use quite a lot in mathematics. The negative exponent property can be confusing, but when you remember a couple fun ideas, you will get it right every time!
3. How to Simplify Expressions with Exponents
In this video, we will put all of the exponent properties we have learned together. Don't let lots of numbers and letters confuse you! Simplifying exponents can be easy and fun!
4. Rational Exponents
In this video, learn how to go from a rational exponent to a radical expression and back. No tricks or magic, just good math! We'll review the basics and look at a few examples.
5. Simplifying Expressions with Rational Exponents
Simplifying expressions with rational exponents is so easy. In fact, you already know how to do it! We simply use the exponent properties but with fractions as the exponent!
6. Power of Powers: Simplifying Exponential Expressions
Mathematics is a very logical science. There is a rule for everything and not many exceptions to those rules. Working with exponents is no different. This lesson will describe the rule for raising a power to a power and also will give some examples in how to solve them.
7. How to Write 0.0005 in Scientific Notation: Steps & Tutorial
Scientists and engineers and others who deal with incredibly big or incredibly small numbers have devised scientific notation to help them work with those big and small numbers. Learn how simple it is in this lesson.
8. How to Show 10 to the 2nd Power: Steps & Tutorial
We have several ways to show 10 raised to the 2nd power. The appropriate way depends in which setting you are writing or typing. This lesson goes over three ways to show 10 raised to the 2nd power.
9. How to Write 1 Billion in Scientific Notation
Scientific notation provides a way to write very large or very small numbers in a nice compact form. Let's look at how to write 1 billion in scientific notation. This lesson will illustrate the steps involved in this process, and we will also see how to easily check our work.
10. How to Write 1 Trillion in Scientific Notation
Scientific notation can help us write really big numbers in a convenient format. Here, we will see how to write one trillion in scientific notation. We will also look at some fun facts about the number one trillion and the application of writing numbers as large as one trillion in scientific notation.
11. How to Write 1 Million in Scientific Notation
Scientific notation is a convenient of expression large or small numbers. This lesson will explain the steps involved in writing 1 million using scientific notation. We will then take a look at a real world situation in which scientific notation is used to write 1 million.
12. How to Write 1000 in Scientific Notation
Scientific notation sounds may sound scary, but it's really not. It's actually very easy! In this lesson, you'll learn how to write 1000 in scientific notation in a step by step fashion.
