# Lesson Plan in Intermediate Algebra

a. By definition
ax = a.a.a……a

## b. First Law of Exponents

ax. ay = a x + y
c. Second Law of Exponents
( ax) y = axy
d. Third Law of Exponents
( ab) x = ax bx
e. Fourth Law of Exponents
= ax – y if a y ≠ 0 and x>y
f. Fifth Law of Exponents
( )x = if b ≠ 0

II. Objective
Review the concepts related to positive integral exponents
Identify the different laws of exponents
Apply the different laws of exponents in simplifying expressions

## III. Values Integration

Discuss the importance of law and order in an organization

IV. Material
Prepared board work for exercises

V. Procedure
A. Preliminary Activity
1. Ask the class to tell something about the famous quotation from
former Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim: “Laws are meant to be applied to
all, or none at all”. Lead the discussion on the importance of law in
any organization.
B. Lesson Proper
1. Review the meaning of exponents. Ask the class to give the meaning
of the following:
a. x3
b. 25
c. (3x)4
d. ( x+y)6

## 2. Use inductive approach in recalling the Laws of Exponents

First Law of Exponents
a. x2.x3
b. m5.m7
c. y4.y
d. (33) (3)
e. ax. ay

a. (x2)3
b. (n4)5
c. (23)3
d. (42)2
e. (ax)y

a. (xy)5
b. (xy2)4
c. (x2y3)3
d. (3xy2)
e. (ab)x

a. c.

b. d.

a. ( )2 c. ( )2

b. ( )3 d. ( )2

## 4. For individual practice, tell the class to work on Written Mathematics

of Exercise 5.1 (numbers 1-10) on page 226-227.

## Simplify the following:

1. (2x2) (3x3) 4. (3x2) (y3)2 (2x2y3)
2. (3x2)3 (2x3)2 5.
