Slide 1  How to Work with Powers (Bases and Exponents)
 By Trystan Johnson

Slide 2  Introduction:
 Today I will be teaching you how to work with powers. The reason this is important, is because we use powers (bases and exponents) in math a lot. The reason we use them in math is because it is much easier to deal with a small number (or base) with an exponent than a large number instead. There aren’t really any uses for bases and exponents in an average everyday life.
 "Mathematics is a game played according to certain simple rules with meaningless marks on paper."  David Hilbert

Slide 3  Basic Information:
 Base: Number being multiplied.
 Exponent: It tells how many times the base will be multiplied by.
 Ex.)

Slide 4  When multiplying like bases, you just add the exponents:
 Ex.)

Slide 5  When raising a power to a power, you just multiply the exponents:
 Ex.)

Slide 6  Any integer raised to negative one is the reciprocal of that integer:
 Ex.)

Slide 7  Any fraction raised to negative one is the reciprocal of that fraction:
 Ex.)

Slide 8  When dividing like bases, you subtract the exponents:
 Ex.)

Slide 9  Any number raised to the first power is itself:
 Ex.)

Slide 10  Any number raised to the zero power is one:
 Ex.)

Slide 11  Conclusion:
 Today we have learned about powers, or bases and exponents. It’s important to use these in math because they can be used in various fashions to make a problem more understandable. They are also important in the way of reducing the size of a larger number (ex. 1000 = 10^3). By understanding the uses and learning the rules of bases and exponents, you’ll become a better mathematician in this field of expertise.
 It is best, and I encourage you to learn the steps of powers or bases and exponents so that you can understand them easier in the future in any math class or math experience. There’s no reason to stereotype yourself. Doing math is like going to the gym – it’s a workout for your brain and it makes you smarter.” – Danica McKellar
