# Expressions with Exponents (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

• I can write numerical expressions.
• I can evaluate numerical expressions with exponents.
I can write numerical expressions involving whole number exponents.
Ex. 34 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3
• I can evaluate numerical expressions involving whole number exponents.
Ex. 34 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 81
• I can solve order of operation problems that contain exponents.
Ex. 3+22 – (2+3) = 2

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 = 35
The term 35 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.

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.
