Exponent Properties: The Product Rule
What is the difference between with examples and ? Explain in complete sentences and

Product

Repeated multiplication

Power of the form

Now, determine a general rule for what happens when we have two exponential expressions multiplying each other with the same base. You may want to write the rule in words, or you can use an example or expression to communicate the rule.

Why do you think this rule is called ´the product ruleµ?

Please write the algebraic rule we came up with as a class:

Exponent Properties: The Distributive Rule for Products
Product Repeated multiplication
Rearrange the multiplications using the commutative property so similar things are next to each other.

Power of the form

Now, determine a general rule for what happens when we have two different things both raised to the same power. You may want to write the rule in words, or you can use an example or expression to communicate the rule.

Why do you think this rule is called ´the distributive ruleµ?

How is this rule different from the rule we studied yesterday?

Exponent Properties: The Quotient Rule
Quotient Repeated multiplication Cancel Power of the form

Too big to write out! Find another way.

Now, determine a general rule for what happens when we have two exponential expressions dividing each other with the same base. You may want to write the rule in words, or you can use an example or expression to communicate the rule.

Please write the algebraic rule we came up with as a class:

The quotient rule is actually really cool, because it allows us to figure out a few other things.

Exponent Properties: The Zero Exponent Rule
Quotient Use the quotient rule to write in the form Look at the original quotient. What is it as just a number?

What do you think anything to the zero power should equal?

Exponent Properties: The Distributive Rule for Quotients
Quotient Repeated multiplication Write as a fraction

Too hard to write out! Find another way. Now, determine a general rule for what happens when we have a quotient raised to a power. You may want to write the rule in words, or you can use an example or expression to communicate the rule.

Why is this rule called ´the distributive rule for quotients?µ

Exponent Properties: The Power Rule
Problem to simplify First repeated multiplication Second repeated multiplication Power of the form

Too big to write out! Find another way. Now, determine a general rule for what happens when we have something already to a power, raised to a power again. You may want to write the rule in words, or you can use an example or expression to communicate the rule.

How is this rule different from the product rule?

Exponent Properties: Negative Exponents
Quotient Repeated multiplication Answer as a fraction
Use the quotient rule to get power of the form

What does a negative exponent mean? Look at the two columns on the right and try to formulate a rule.

Are positive expressions with negative exponents negative?

What do you think this simplifies to be: out mathematically.
