Law of Exponents - Multiplication with Like Bases

Unit 2: Exponents and Radicals
Lesson 5 of 19

Objective: Students will be able to conceptually understand exponents to expand multiplication involving exponents with the same base. By expanding the multiplication, students will develop the rule of adding exponents when multiplying with the same base.

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