Negative Exponent Intuition
"Demystifying" an often mysterious problem, Sal demonstrates some tricks for considering exponents intuitively, rather than working them out each time. He first takes viewers through positive exponents and works up to negative exponents, assuring them that like in all mathematics, exponents are a matter of patterns.

Extending the Definitions of Exponents, Variation 1
Scientist work with negative integer exponents all the time. Here, participants will learn how to relate negative exponents to time and to generate equivalent numerical expressions. Learners will apply the properties of integer exponents and see that a negative exponent is the time before something began.

How Do You Evaluate an Expression with Exponents?
An algebraic expression and a given value for the variable. Use the substitution property of equality to plug in the given value and solve the expression. Be careful and use the order of operations correctly because there is an exponent in the expression.

Exponent Rules Part 1
Sal uses examples and clear explanations in this video, which shows viewers how to easily work out equations with larger numbers than they might be comfortable using. By pointing out patterns and using shortcuts, Sal shows viewers that they can use their current level of skills to solve complicated equations.

Introduction to Logarithms Properties
Sal gets to the heart of the matter in this video, clarifying that it's important to understand math "so you can actually apply it in life later on and not have relearn everything every time." True to his word, Sal demonstrates ways to more easily and intuitively solve logs and exponents with several well-explained examples.

What's the Power of a Quotient Rule?
What's the definition of the power of a quotient rule? You have a fraction that has variables and exponents in the numerator and the denominator, and the whole thing is to a power. Oh my! Don't cry! You can do this. Once you see the rule applied you will sigh with relief and be able to tackle any expressions like this.
