Laws of Exponents - Power Raised to a Power

Unit 2: Exponents and Radicals
Lesson 7 of 19

Objective: Students will be able to use conceptual approach to enable students to establish deep understanding of the properties of exponents that can be used to raise a power to a power. Conceptually understand exponents to expand exponents with the same base and different bases. By expanding the multiplication, students will develop the rule of multiplying exponents by applying grouping and the associative property.

Big Idea: Memorization is short term knowledge but understanding endures time. Create the rules for exponents by expanding the bases to understand.
