## Reflection: Vertical Alignment Stringing in Zero - Section 1: Start Up

Before you dive into this unit and customize an exponent unit of your own for teaching the Common Core in your classroom, it is worth spending some time thinking about vertical alignment of learning about exponents under the Common Core. I have written my thoughts down in A note about the standards surrounding exponents. If you have reactions or suggestions for additional connections, I would love to hear from you via Comments (at the bottom of the lesson).
