# Ch 14: MTTC Math (Secondary): Exponents & Exponential Expressions

Use the activities of this chapter to improve your skills simplifying exponents and solving exponential expressions as you prepare for the MTTC Mathematics (Secondary) teacher certification exam.

## MTTC Math (Secondary): Exponents & Exponential Expressions - Chapter Summary

As part of a study guide course for the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) Mathematics (Secondary) exam, the activities of this chapter will help you improve your skills working mathematical problems with exponents. Watch the lesson videos to review the steps taken to evaluate exponents with non-whole numbers as bases, simplify exponential expressions and other mathematical operations with exponential expressions. After these lessons you should have a better understanding of:

• The five main properties of exponents
• Expressions with zero and negative exponents
• Evaluating exponents with fraction or decimal bases
• Simplifying exponential expressions
• The order of operations
• Multiplying and dividing exponential expressions

Practice these skills by completing the assessments that accompany the lesson videos. After completing these assessments, use your results to find out what skills you need to improve and review those procedures by returning the locations of the lesson videos that discussed them with video tags. If you have any questions about any of these topics be sure to ask our instructors for clarification so that you may effectively master the information presented.

### MTTC Math (Secondary): Exponents & Exponential Expressions Objectives

The objective of the MTTC Mathematics (Secondary) exam is to measure future math teachers' mastery over the skills and knowledge needed to teach their future students. It does so by asking 80 multiple-choice questions. These questions are administered in a 4.5 hour testing session and approximately 28% of the them will ask you about topics of patterns, algebraic relationships and functions, including exponential expressions. The purpose of this chapter is to help you improve your skills working with exponential expression so that you will be able to complete these questions in a fast and accurate manner.
