This lesson is involves exponentiation. Building off of the previous lesson involving grouped multiplication, the idea of repeated multiplication is introduced. By comparing this to the idea that repeated addition is multiplication, and that using multiplication is more efficient both symbolically and in terms of the time involved in performing calculations, exponentiation can be viewed in a similar light.
