Background Tutorials

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.

If you have a repeated multiplication, you could write it using exponents! This tutorial introduces exponents and explains how they're used.

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).

Check out this tutorial where you'll see exactly what order you need to follow when you simplify expressions. You'll also see what happens when you don't follow these rules, and you'll find out why order of operations is so important!
