Ch 5: NY Regents - Problems with Exponential Expressions: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Problems with Exponential Expressions chapter of this NY Regents Integrated Algebra Help and Review course is the simplest way to master exponential expressions. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of problems with exponential expressions.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering integrated algebra material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn integrated algebra. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding exponential growth vs. decay or working with multiplication and division of exponential expressions
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning math (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about problems with exponential expressions
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra math learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the Problems with Exponential Expressions chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Problems with Exponential Expressions chapter exam to be prepared.
  • Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any exponential expressions question. They're here to help!
  • Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

Students will review:

This chapter helps students review the concepts in a Problems with Exponential Expressions unit of a standard integrated algebra course. Topics covered include:

  • Solving exponential equations
  • Exponential growth vs. decay

What Is an Exponential Function?

1. What Is an Exponential Function?

Brand new technologies don't always catch on right away because they can be expensive and don't always work as well as they should. But once the price comes down, and they start to work better, it doesn't take very long before it seems like everyone has one. Learn about the numbers behind this, exponential functions!

How to Solve Exponential Equations

2. How to Solve Exponential Equations

Read this lesson to learn the steps you need to take to solve exponential equations. You'll see that it's not too difficult; you just need to make use of one other mathematical operation in order to solve your problems.

Exponential Growth vs. Decay

3. Exponential Growth vs. Decay

How is it that it only takes four years for our computer to go from top-of-the-line to almost worthless? Well, it has something to do with what's called exponential decay, which we'll learn about here!

Exponential Expressions & The Order of Operations

4. Exponential Expressions & The Order of Operations

When performing mathematical operations, there is a specific order in which the operations should be performed. This includes when to simplify the exponents. This lesson will describe in what order exponents should be solved as you are performing mathematical operations.

Multiplying Exponential Expressions

5. Multiplying Exponential Expressions

There are certain rules that govern working with exponential expressions. This lesson deals with the rule for multiplying exponential expressions. It will describe the rule and give some examples of how it works.

Dividing Exponential Expressions

6. Dividing Exponential Expressions

Any time you work with expressions that contain exponents, you have to follow a specific set of rules that are not the same as when you are working with expressions that do not contain exponents. This lesson will describe the rules associated with dividing terms that contain exponents.

Exponential Decay: Examples & Definition

7. Exponential Decay: Examples & Definition

Exponential decay occurs when a population decreases at a consistent rate over time. In this lesson, you will learn what makes exponential decay unique.
