EngageNY 45 min(s)

Most of the time in this lesson should be spent having students work through possible meanings of numbers raised to the zeroth power and then checking the validity of their claims. Encourage students to share their thinking about what a number raised to the zeroth power could mean. It may be necessary to guide students through the work of developing cases to check the definition.
