Powers & Exponents
This program covers the important topic of teaching students the concept of an exponent and how they fit into pre-algebra. Students learn how to write exponents and how to expand them into the multiplication of the base number. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with easier problems and gradually progressing to harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this section are committed to long term memory.
