Emphasis is placed on understanding the language of math, what each symbol means and why it is possible to end up with negative exponents and the reasoning behind moving them to the other part of the fraction, by building on prior knowledge.

When we use symbols and letters to represent ideas, those symbols and letters are described as a language. If students can "read" the language of math, then they can understand what the question or problem is expecting them to do. If they can "read" the language of math, then they can follow the "directions" and complete the task at hand. Most students would say that doing math isn't difficult, but understanding the language of math can be.

This series aims to teach the concept of exponents while developing math literacy skills through carefully planned, step-by-step, visually appealing, accurate and thought provoking slides.
