Today we learned how to use scientific notation to represent both really large and really small numbers in Lesson 13.4. We'll do some more work with scientific notation tomorrow.
Here's a great visualization of the kinds of things for which we'd need scientific notation to measure or count. Notice the base 10 power in the lower right corner?

Today we finished our look at exponent properties with a look at negative and zero exponents in Lesson 13.3.
This now completes all six of the exponent rules that you need to memorize and be able to use to solve and simplify a variety of problems. You'll find all six in the graphic on this post. Study, study, study; practice, practice, practice!
