This is a 20-slide presentation over the basic concepts of exponents, bases and coefficients. This is a great presentation to teach the concepts to beginners or to review (which is what I use it for with my Algebra 1 students) before moving on to a unit on Exponent Laws.
The presentation begins with a schematic of a typical expression containing a coefficient, base and exponent. The schematic is labeled and each part is explained. Next, examples follow where the student is given an expression and has to identify the coefficient, base and exponent. One example has more than one base and exponent, one example does not contain an obvious coefficient (because it is one) and another example includes a number as a base.
Next, examples follow where the student is asked to expand the expression. This also contains an example where the coefficient is one and where the base is a number. Finally, the student is given an expanded expression and asked to rewrite the expression using a coefficient, base and exponent.
The presentation ends with two thinking questions for the students to discuss with a partner and then share out with the class. Each slide contains teacher notes and/or key in the notes section. 3 slides have animation.
This presentation pairs beautifully and is written to be followed up by my Intro to Exponents Practice
