It is my pleasure to share with you a power point on Powers and Exponents. In this lesson, students explore powers and bases; they learn about grouping symbols, their meaning and their use in algebra. They walk through evaluating powers and then solve multiple examples on their own. Word problems requiring the use of formulas with exponents are included in this power point; answers are provided. You will find in the final slide a beautiful quote by Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) as quoted in Sports Illustrated February 24, 1964. His words are kind and beautiful, and I thought they would be an inspiration to students when they face challenges in life. Have a great day guiding your students in the wonderful discipline we all know and love, mathematics!
