Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 2/1

Today’s lesson was about solving equations when the variable is in the exponent. The trick is to get both sides of the equation to be in terms of the same base, which is why having a good familiarity with various powers of bases 2-10 is so useful (and why I’ve been quizzing you on these daily).

We expanded on the use of rational exponents today, this time in the context of using them to solve equations.

A reminder: because I want you to be able to work through this chapter without relying on the calculator, we will have a daily Powers Quiz. I will choose 10 powers from the table you made on HW 5.1 and ask you to evaluate them without using the calculator in a brief, timed quiz. We will do this every day through the unit, and only  your highest grade on any one quiz will be the one used in your Unit 5 grade.

We’ve started a new unit, this one on rules of exponents. Today was a review of pre-existing shortcuts, along with an introduction of some new ones.

Finally, because I want you to be able to work through this chapter without relying on the calculator, we will have a daily Powers Quiz. I will choose 10 powers from the powers reference sheet you make in today’s homework. I will ask you to evaluate them without using the calculator in a brief, timed quiz. We will do this every day through the rest of the unit, and only your highest grade on any one quiz will be the one used in your Unit 5 grade.
