Unit 7, Lesson 1# Exponent Review

Open Up Resources 40 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

Let's review exponents. Learning targets: students can use exponents to describe repeated multiplication. In grade 6, students worked with whole number exponents. This lesson reviews those concepts and subtly introduces the idea that repeated division by a number can be thought of as repeated multiplication by the reciprocal of that number, which plays a key role in later work on negative exponents.
