Exponent Properties Involving Quotients Assessment Key (pdf).

Lesson (pdf).

Your homework for tonight is:

  1. Check the portal for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment online. You have to score at least a 4.5 out of 5 to be considered proficient. If you score less than a 4.5, then you'll need to come in and re-assess. (If you score a 4.5, you can also choose to come in and re-assess to try to get the 5 - I highly encourage that, but don't require it). If you score below a 3.5, then it will show in the grade book as "missing" (which counts like a 0) until you come in and re-assess at least one time. (It's really important to master these skills as we go along, which is why I put it as missing to make sure you come in and re-assess.)

  2. Complete the Scientific Notation Pre-Assessment on the Moodle, and then fill out the self-assess part of your student checklist. (Note that there is an additional, optional pre-assessment if you want more practice.)

  3. On your personal blog, create a new post titled: "Scientific Notation"
    In the post explain to your reader how to solve this problem:
    Multiply, then write your answer in scientific notation: (4.5 x 1011)(3.1 x 104)
    Make sure you thoroughly explain the steps and what you are doing so that someone that doesn't know how to do scientific notation can understand it.
    (Hint: Just in case, the correct answer is 1.395 x 1016)

    Due by first period on Tuesday, January 22nd.

  4. Prepare for the Zero and Negative Exponents Assessment on Friday.
