1 Exponents Exponents tell us how many times to multiply a base number by itself. Exponential form: 5 4 exponent base number Expanded form: To use a calculator: put in the base number, push the exponent button (y x or ); enter the exponent; push equal (=) button. *Anything to the power of zero equals 1. Ex) 25 0 =1 *Anything to the first power (power of one) equals the base number. Ex) 25 1 =25 1

2 Square Roots and Perfect Squares Definition: a square root of any number is the number that when multiplied by itself (to the power of 2 or squared) gives you the number under the square root symbol. The exponent used with square roots is 2. Square root symbol: 81 =9 36 =6 16 =4 49 =7 For example, the number 7 multiplied by itself equals 49 or the number under the square root symbol (7 7=49). The number under the square root symbol is the area of a square. The answer is the length of each side of the square (even if the answer is a decimal) =3 100=10 36=6 Perfect squares are square root problems with the answer (the sides of the square) being a whole number (no decimals). SOL NOTE: You must remember all perfect squares up to 400=20 0 =0 1=1 4=2 9=3 16=4 25=5 36=6 49=7 64 =8 81=9 100=10 121= =12 169=13 196=14 225=15 256=16 289=17 324=18 361=19 400=20 If the square root problem is not a perfect square, use perfect squares to see the number above and below to estimate. Ex) The square root of 32 ( 32) will be between 5 and 6. The square root of 25=5 and the square root of 36=6. Since 32 is between 25 and 36, we know the answer of 32 will be between 5 and 6 and will actually be closer to 6 than 5. 2

3 Base Ten Exponents Place values: ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones tenths hundredths thousandths ten thousandths hundred thousandths 3 6, Ten thousands 10, Thousands 1, Hundreds Tens Ones Tenths Hundredths Thousandths Ten thousandths *With positive base ten exponents, the exponent will match the zeros in the answer. *With negative base ten exponents the negative exponent will match the number of digits in the answer to the right of the decimal. Equivalent numbers: 10-5 = = = 1 = 1 = ,000 *If you don t memorize the above chart or the rules for the SOL, this is another method. First take the negative exponent and put it into scientific notation by just putting 1 x in front of the base 10 exponent ex)10-5 =1. X 10-5 Now, follow rules for scientific notation to make this a decimal. Because this is a negative exponent the decimal should be moved 5 place values to the left. (5 digits left). Therefore, 4 zeros need to be added before the one Now read the decimal as one hundred thousandths and put this in fraction form. 1 Which is also 1 or 1 100, Reciprocal- flip/flop: 10-3 is the reciprocal of

4 Scientific Notation Scientific notation is a way to write extremely large or small numbers with a lot of digits as an abbreviation using base 10 exponents. Step 1 from your original number, make a number between 1-10 with a decimal Step 2 count the number of digits or place values between original position of the decimal and where you moved the decimal Step 3 use the number you get when counting from step 2 as the base 10 exponent If the original number is greater than 1, the exponent is positive. If the original number is between 0 and 1, the exponent is negative Ex) 579,000 step 1: 5.79 step 2: 579, places step 3: 579,000 = 5.79 x 10 5 ex) 6,319,000,000. = x 10 9 Common mistakes 1) 8,017,000, x don t count just the zeros, count the place values the decimal has moved or the number of digits between the original decimal and the new.(correct answer is x 10 9 ) 2) 8,017,000, x don t count all the place values, only count the place values you moved the decimal 3) 4,003,000, x 10 8 you cannot get rid of number locked zeros (correct answer is x 10 9 ) Putting numbers back in to standard form Step 1: rewrite the first part of the number without the decimal Step 2: look at the exponent and add zeros to get to the place value needed 5.79 x 10 5 Step 1: 579 Step 2: 579,000. Needed to move the decimal 5 spaces, had moved 2 so needed to add 3 zeros. Common mistakes 1) Do not add too many zeros exponents tell place values (CM 57,900,000) 2) Do not forget to move the decimal (CM ) 4

5 Scientific Notation with Negative Exponents The number will be greater than 0 and less than one. Step 1 from your original number, make a number between 1-10 with a decimal. Step 2 count the number of digits or place values between original position of the decimal and where you moved the decimal Step 3 use above number as the base 10 exponent (if the original number is less than one, the exponent must be a negative) Ex) step 1: step 2: places (9 digits) step 3: = x 10-9 ex) = 3.8 x = 6 x x *When going from standard form back into scientific notation form, count the digits between where the decimal is in standard form to where it will be when making a number between one and ten. The number of digits gives us the exponent. *Remember to make the exponent a negative if the original number in standard form is between zero and one. 5

6 Fractions, Decimals and Percents 1 = 25% = 0.25 These are all equivalent but not necessarily equal. They represent the same 4 amount of a whole, but to be equal, the whole must be the same. Ex) Comparing a large pizza to a small pizza - of the large pizza is bigger than of the small pizza but they are equivalent amounts. Fractions, decimals and percents are three different ways to represent the same part to whole relationships. When is it whole? Part Whole Percent the whole is % out of 100% Decimal the whole is 1.25 out of 1 Fraction the whole is the denominator (The division symbol ( ) numerator equals denomin ator so all fractions can be considered division problems.) 6 out of Changing a decimal to a percent multiply by 100 because the whole is 100 times 1 (whole in decimal is 1; whole in percent is 100). This can be done by moving the decimal 2 places to the right. You can still have decimals in percent form. Ex).67 =?% = 67 so 0.67 = 67% = 3.05% Changing a percent to a decimal divide by 100 (move decimal 2 places to the left. Ex) 67% =?% = 0.67 so 67% = is 100 times smaller than 67, just like 1 is 100 times smaller than 100. Changing a fraction to a decimal divide the numerator by the denominator. 1 Ex) =?- 4 1 = 0.25 so 1 = 0.25 (Numerator arrives 1 st to the hotel so it gets the last 4 4 room) Ex) 2 1 = 1 2 = 2 1 Common mistake 1 2 Changing a fraction to a percent first change the fraction to a decimal and then follow decimal to percent rule (multiply by 100) Ex) 4 1 = 0.25 = 25%

7 Converting Percents to Fractions When converting a percent to a fraction, when the percent is a whole number, just put the percent number over 100 since 100 is the whole number for percents. You can then simplify the fraction (find the greatest common factor to simplify). 62 Ex) 62% = simplified = If there is a decimal in the percent, convert the percent to the decimal form then put it into a fraction by reading then writing. Ex) 71.4% = which reads seven hundred fourteen thousandths which written 714 is and simplified is Conversion chart (Memorize for SOL)*This is on the non calculator section.* denomin ator numerator Move decimal 2 spaces to the right (x100) Fraction (whole = denominator) Decimal (whole =1) Percent (whole = 100) Say it correctly, then write it Move decimal 2 spaces to the left ( 100) 7

8 Repeating Decimals Line over a number in a decimal shows that it repeats. Only the number under the line is repeated. Ex) 0.4 = = = Common mistake comparing decimals to determine which is greater/less. Must line up the matching place values. (Some students say the repeating decimal is greater because it never ends but.7 is not greater than.8) Ex) Which is greater? 0.31 or 0.7 It would appear that 31 is bigger than 7 but when you line them up by the place value you see that 0.7 > To change a repeating decimal to a percent, round it and show that it is approximate. Ex) % 8

9 Ordering Fractions, Decimals Percents and Scientific Notation *When solving an ordering problem, make sure you read if it is least to greatest or greatest to least. If the numbers are all in scientific notation and you are ordering them, you only need to look at the exponent. The bigger the exponent the bigger the number. Ex) , , in order from least to greatest would be: , , Most of the time you put all the numbers into decimal or percent form to compare NOT fractions. Decimal form is used most frequently. Decimal form for scientific notation is standard form. The numbers can then be stacked to compare and order. (Create a place value chart.) Ex) Place the following in order from greatest to least 71%, 10 7,.007, 0.71, , *Once you line up your place values, put zeros in to make all numbers have the same place value. (Unless it is repeating, the you put in whatever number repeats instead of zero.) 71% (CM- putting in zeros here instead of ones) 7.1x x10 6 7,100, Greatest to least: , 0.71, 71%, 10 7,.007,

10 Integers Integers are the set of all whole numbers and their opposites. ( - 3, - 2, - 1, 0, 1, 2, 3 ) Any number with a fraction, decimal or percent is NOT an integer. ( - 3.2, - 1.5, 75%, ) Read these symbols correctly from left to right: > Greater than < Less than The negative symbol can be read as the opposite of. Common mistake integers are often confused with just negative numbers. *Remember that integers also include positives. 10

11 Basic Rules for Integers MEMORIZE! Addition Signs are the same Add and keep signs. Ex) = =8 Signs are different Ask yourself two questions: a) Do I have more negative numbers or positives? (This gives us the sign for the answer) b) How many more negatives or positives do I have? (This gives us the number for our answer) Ex) =? a) More negatives or positives? Negatives so my answer is a negative number. b) How many more? 5 So the answer is negative five = - 5 Subtraction Change subtraction to addition and change the sign of the second number. (When subtracting, just add the opposite.) Ex) 6-( - 3) = =9 Next, just follow addition rules. Ex) - 6-( - 3) = = Follow addition rules for one negative and one positive. I have 3 more negatives so my answer is negative ( - 3) = = - 3 Multiplication and Division When multiplying or dividing, when the signs are the same the answer is positive. Ex) 3 6= =18 4 2= =2 When multiplying or dividing, when the signs are different the answer is always negative. Ex) 3 ( - 6)=( - 18) =( - 3) 11

12 Integer Addition Integer addition when you have all negatives or all positives: just add the numbers and keep the sign the same. (positive plus positive equals positive; negative plus negative equals negative) Ex) 3 + 4=7 (positive plus positive equals positive) = - 7 (negative plus negative equals negative) Zero pairs equal negative and positive numbers that add together to be zero. ( - 3, 3; - 5, 5) Addition with negative and positive, look for zero pairs. The smaller of the two numbers you are adding is the number of zero pairs. Whatever you have left is the answer. Do you have more negatives or positives? How much more? Key: = positive = negative Ex) - 3+8=5 Zero pairs cancel each other out (add together to make zero) 5 positive chips left =4 12

13 Addition of Integers with Chips Whichever you have less of (negative or positive) is the number of zero pairs you have there are 72 zero pairs (31 negative chips left over so your answer is -31) there are 3 zero pairs (5 negative chips left over so your answer is -5) It is not which number is the least, it is which you have the less of (negatives or positives). Be sure to look at the chip key. *We will use this key for example. Key: or Key: = positive = negative = positive = negative Ex) I have 5 negative chips and need to add 2 negative chips. The answer is - 7 No zero pairs. 3+4 I have 3 positive chips and need to add 4 positive chips. The answer is 7. No zero pairs I have 6 negative chips and need to add 4 positive chips. The answer is - 2. There are 4 zero pairs with 2 negative chips left over. Using mailman math to explain zero pairs: I received a bill for $8. I received a check for $3. I can use the $3 to pay for 3 of the 8 I owe. I still owe $5. 13

14 Integer Addition with Number Line Model Number lines extend forever in both directions. You can show any portion of the line as needed by a problem. You always start with zero when using the number line model. If the number is negative go to the left. If the number is positive go to the right. Overlapping lines are the zero pairs. Ex) = start at zero, go to the left to - 3 then go 2 more to the left. Answer is Ex) = start at zero, go to the right to 3 the go to the left 7. Answer is - 4. Zero pairs

15 Rules for Subtracting Integers Rule: Change your subtraction sign to an addition sign and change the second number to its opposite. Then follow the addition rules. Any time you subtract, you are adding the opposite of the second number. Two possible ways to have a gain using mail man math problems: 1) receive a check (adding a positive) or 2) have a bill taken away (subtracting a negative) Ex) ( - 7)-6= - 13 I had a bill for $7 then lost a check for $6. I am in the hole 13 dollars. 4-( - 3)=7 I received a check for $4 and a bill was taken away for $3. I have gained 7 dollars. Or, just follow the rules: ( - 7)-6 = ( - 7)+( - 6) = ( - 3)=7 15

16 Integer Chip Subtraction Always show the first number in chips first. See if you can take away the second number from those chips. If not, add as many zero pairs as needed. (Zero pairs do not change the first number you are just adding zero to it.) Use the basic integer subtraction rule to check your work. Key: = positive = negative Ex) - 10-( - 6) I have 10 negative chips and need to take away 6 negative chips. The answer is - 4. Check: - 10-( - 6) = = - 4 In this problem, it was easy to take the second amount of chips from the first. Ex) 5-( - 6) I have 5 positive chips and need to take away 6 negative chips. Since there are no negative chips in 5, add enough zero pairs ( ) to be able to cross out 6 negative chips (6 zero pairs are needed). Now you can subtract the 6 negative chips and you are left with 11 positive chips. 5-( - 6)=11. Check: 5-( - 6)=5+6=11. 16

17 Integer Subtraction with the Number Line Model Always start at zero. Go to your first number. If you are taking away a negative, go right. If you are taking away a positive, go left. Number line model can be the same for addition and subtraction. Ex) - 6-( - 4) = = In this problem, we went 4 spaces to the right because we were taking away negatives. (We would be getting a bigger number. A way to check if your subtraction model is correct is to change the subtraction to an addition problem. Check to see if your subtraction model and addition model would be the same. Balloon Math for adding and subtracting integers Sand bags are weight so you travel down (-) Gas bags are air so you travel up (+) Start at zero. Travel to first number. Take away either sand bags (-) or gas bags (+) Ex. - 3-( - 4) Start at zero. Travel to - 3. Take away 4 sand bags. End up at 1. *Ways for a balloon to go up Adding gas bags (plus positive) Taking away sand bags (subtracting a negative) *Ways for a balloon to go down Adding sand bags (weight) (plus a negative) Subtracting gas bags (taking away a positive)

18 Multiplication and Division of Integers The rules for the multiplication and division of integers are the same. Positive x positive = positive 2 7=14 positive positive = positive 14 7=2 Negative x negative = positive - 2-7=14 positive negative = negative 14-7= - 2 Negative x positive = negative - 2 7= - 14 negative positive = negative = - 2 When multiplying or dividing, if the signs are the same, the answer is positive. If the signs are different, the answer is negative. The first number tells how many groups. The second number tells how many are in each group. 3 2 means there are 3 groups of 2 = 6 Using balloon math: The sign of the first number tells whether we are putting on groups (+) or taking off groups (-). The second number tell whether they are gas bags (+) or sand bags (-) - 2 7= - 14 You are taking away 2 groups of 7 gas bags, so you are going down 14 spaces. 2-7= - 14 You are adding 2 groups of 7 sand bags, so you are going down 14 spaces =14 You are taking away 2 groups of 7 sand bags, so you are going ups 14 spaces. 18

You must draw pictures Any time you are doing addition or subtraction word problems, the picture will be a vertical number line. Labels are important. You must have a completion sentence that states the answer. Multiplication and division word problems are most likely not number lines. Ex) Grace recorded the average temperature outside for three days. Monday 19 F Tuesday - 10 F Wednesday 7 F What is the difference in temperature between Monday and Tuesday? The difference is 29 F. 19 spaces{ 10 spaces{ 19 Monday s temp Tuesday s temp. 19

20 Order of Operations with Integers *Order of operation problems are simplifying expressions. Do in this order: parenthesis exponents Multiplication or division (left to right whichever comes first) Addition or subtraction (left to right whichever comes first) When students use Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally (PEMDAS) to remember the order of operations, they often forget that the order of M/D and A/S can switch because they occur left to right whichever comes first. The directions to an order of operations problem will say to Evaluate or Simplify. It won t say to solve because it doesn t have an equal sign. Any time there are a lot of operations inside parenthesis, it must be treated like its own order of operations problem. Parenthesis without operations inside, means multiply. Ex) (2+3) ( ) ( ) ( ) (2 8) (16) (256) (256) *Many common mistakes are made when simplifying expressions. Do one step at a time and be careful with exponents. *With negative exponents remember if the exponent is even the answer will be positive. If the exponent is odd the answer will be negative. Ex) ( - 3) 2 = - 3-3=9 Ex) ( - 3) 3 = =

21 With fraction problems, do numerator and denominator as separate mini problems (3 1 +1) -2 Numerator = 8 Denominator (3 1 +1) -2 (3+1)

22 Proportions and Ratios Ratio the comparison of two numbers by division (similar to fraction). Fractions are always ratios but ratios are not always fractions. A comparison of any two quantities which may be expressed 3 2, 2:3, 2 to 3, 2 out of 3 Proportion simply shows us that we have two equivalent ratios (not necessarily equal). Proportional reasoning the ratios will increase or decrease by the same amount of times either numerator to numerator and denominator to denominator or both numerators to denominators. If two ratios can be reduced to the same fraction, they are proportional (equivalent). Ex) Are 10 5 and 12 6 proportions? Yes because 5 2=10 and 6 2=12 (same increase from numerator to denominator on both ratios) Ex) Are and proportions? Yes because 2 21=42 and 6 21=126 (same increase numerator to numerator and denominator to denominator). Or yes because 2 3=6 and 42 3=126. Cross multiplication is another way to check for proportion. 2 7 Ex) 5 7=35 and =35 so the two ratios are proportional If two ratios are proportional and there is a variable, use proportion reasoning or cross multiply to find the variable Ex) = Using proportional reasoning, 2 3=6 so 42 3=n so n is n 22

23 Solving Proportions Using Algebra You must always keep your equation balanced. Whatever you do to one side you must do the same to the other. Step one cross multiply (always keep the variable on the left side of the equation) Step two 2 goals 1) Get the variable by itself (do the inverse operation to both sides) 2) Keep the equation balanced. Ex) 12 5 n = 48 step one: (cross multiply) 12n=240. step two: (get n by itself) divide by 12. To keep the equation balanced, 240 needs to be divided by 12 too. Check: = n 240 = n=

24 Proportion Word Problems You must label. You must have three known variables to solve a simple proportion. Step one: underline or highlight the three know values (including the label) Step two: since proportions are two equivalent rations, look for the two values that create the first ratio. (First two numbers being compared.) Step three: Set up the second ration with the unknown value and make sure the labels line up. Step four: Solve your proportion and make your completion statement. The label for the unknown value is the question being asked. Some word problems have 3 labels but you need 2. Some have 1 label but you need to have 2. When looking for answers on a test that gives a proportion for answers, cross multiply to see if it matches your answer. Ex) 12 inches of rain fell in 1 hour. How many hours did it take to rain 36 inches? Step one: underline the 3 known values. 12inches Step two: set up first ratio 1hour 36inches Step three: set up second ratio with labels lined up nhours 12inches 1hour 36inches = nhours solve with proportional reasoning 12 3=36 so n=1 3 (n=3) Solve by cross multiplying 12n=36 Divide both sides by 12. n=3 24
