This MS PowerPoint presentation provides an easy-to-understand and classroom-tested technique for simplifying algebraic expressions using the basic exponent properties/rules. It addresses the rules used for multiplication and division as well as both negative and zero exponents. I have used this presentation in my Math I and II (Algebra 1 and 2) classes. The solution technique uses easy-to-remember steps for the properties along with multiple examples to insure student understanding. The presentation slide pack is fully animated and is designed to keep the students engaged and focused while watching. Please note that any of the animations can be modified as desired by the teacher/end user.
