We began with the Exponent Properties Involving Products Assessment (key, pdf).

Today's lesson (pdf). looked at properties of exponents involving zero and negative exponents, as well as a depreciation example and an exponential look at caffeine.

Your homework for Wednesday is:
  1. Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment.

  2. Finish step 3 of the Caffeine Elimination Worksheet (lesson, pdf).

  3. Complete the Define and Use Zero and Negative Exponents Online Pre-Assessment.

  4. Prepare for the Exponent Properties Involving Quotients Assessment on Wednesday. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment.

  5. Watch (including completing the Guided Practice and Self-Check sections) the Scientific Notation video.
