Common Core For Grade 6

Examples, solutions, videos, and lessons to help Grade 6 students learn to write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.

Common Core: 6.EE.1

### Suggested Learning Targets

**Expressions with Exponents (6.EE.1)**

Why use exponents?

Evaluating Exponents

Rules:

1 to any power is equal to 1.

0 to any power is equal to 0.

**Evaluate and Create Equivalent Exponential Expressions (CC:6.EE.1)**

How to evaluate exponential expressions and how to express a value in exponential form?

Exponents are used to shorten or condense repeated multiplication.

3•3•3•3•3 = 3^{5}

The term 3^{5} is written using the exponential notation. 3 is the base and 5 is the exponent. The exponent or power indicates the number of times that the factor, or base, is multiplied.

**Expressions with Exponents (6-EE-1)**

This video presents common core standard 6.EE.1.

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole number exponents.**6.EE.1 - Exponential Notation**

Understanding exponents is critical to understanding algebra. This video explains how this notation or shorthand way of writing repeated multiplication works and how to work between both ways of notating. This video deals only with whole-number exponents, as Common Core math standard 6.EE.1 expresses.**Solve Math Expressions Using The Order Of Operations**

Review how to perform the order of operations.
