## Part 1 Activity Questions

1.) What is a base? 2.) What is a power? 3.) What does a base and power (exponent) tell you to do? 4.) What is a power a shortcut to? 5.) How could you use geometry to describe squaring or cubing a number?

1.) A base is sort of like your starting number, its well your base! An example in: 84 (8*8*8*8) your base would be 8. 2.) A power is the small number (or exponent) that is there to show how many times you multiply the base number. 3.) A base is the number that you will multiply the power by. Ex: 53 = 125 (125=5*5*5). 4.) A power is a shortcut for showing how many times to multiply your base by. 5.) Squaring=length times width.

## What are the Different Forms?: Notes

Standard form: standard form is when the number (sum, difference, product, quotient, ect.) is just written out just as a regular number, ex: 3,000 or 56, they are just as they would be. Expanded form (repeated multiplication): expanded form is when the total of a multiplication problem is written out with all the integers, ex: 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 (=3,125). Exponential form: exponential form is when for example the problem above with 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 it would be 55 in exponential form, you would count and the multiples and then have your base number with however many times the number adds on. Her are some more examples: 8*8*8*8*8*8=86 OR 3*3*3*3=34
