MA.7.NSO.1.1

Know and apply the Laws of Exponents to evaluate numerical expressions and generate equivalent numerical expressions, limited to whole-number exponents and rational number bases.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction focuses on building the Laws of Exponents from specific examples. Refer to the K-12 Formulas (Appendix E) for the Laws of Exponents.

Clarification 2: Problems in the form begin mathsize 12px style a to the power of n over a to the power of m equals a to the power of p end style must result in a whole-number value for p.
