Chapter Overview One way you can help your student succeed in Chapter 4 is by discussing the standards in the chart below. When a lesson is completed, ask your student the following questions. What were the goals of the lesson? What new words and formulas did you learn? How can you apply the ideas of the lesson to your life?

Lesson Title and California Standards


4.1: Integer Powers of Ten NS 1.1 Read, write, and compare rational numbers in scientific notation (positive and negative powers of 10), compare rational numbers in general. NS 2.1 Understand negative whole-number exponents. Multiply and divide expressions involving exponents with a common base. AF 2.1 Interpret positive whole-number powers as repeated multiplication and negative whole-number powers as repeated division or multiplication by the multiplicative inverse. Simplify and evaluate expressions that include exponents. 4.2: Scientific Notation NS 1.1 4.3: Zero and Negative Exponents NS 1.2 Add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers (integers, fractions, and terminating decimals) and take positive rational numbers to whole-number powers. NS 2.1 AF 2.1 4.4: Finding and Approximating Square Roots NS 2.4 Use the inverse relationship between raising to a power and extracting the root of a perfect square integer; for an integer that is not square, determine without a calculator the two integers between which its square root lies and explain why. 4.5: Simplifying Square Roots NS 2.4 4.6: Rational and Irrational Numbers NS 1.4 Differentiate between rational and irrational numbers.
