The objective for this lesson is Use properties of exponents to multiply exponential expressions. The properties introduced are the Product of Powers Property, Power of a Power Property, and Power of a Product Property.
I teach this lesson backwards. I do four problems of each property then I ask students if they notice a pattern. Once we discuss it, I show them the property.
These lessons are done in Smart Notebook.
