# Exponents

Understanding the concept of exponents including squares, cubes and square roots and applying the concept to whole numbers, decimals, fractions.

#### Mapped to CCSS Section# 6.EE.A.2c, 8.EE.A.2, 8.NS.A.2, 6.EE.A.1

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For example, use the formulas V = s3 and A = 6 s2 to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = 1/2.,Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that ?2 is irrational.,Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., ?2). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of ?2, show that ?2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.,Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
