Lesson Plan in Intermediate Algebra

Prepared by Mr. Randy P. Esperida

I. Mathematical Concepts and Skills


a. By definition
ax = a.a.a……a

b. First Law of Exponents


ax. ay = a x + y
c. Second Law of Exponents
( ax) y = axy
d. Third Law of Exponents
( ab) x = ax bx
e. Fourth Law of Exponents
= ax – y if a y ≠ 0 and x>y
f. Fifth Law of Exponents
( )x = if b ≠ 0

II. Objective
Review the concepts related to positive integral exponents
Identify the different laws of exponents
Apply the different laws of exponents in simplifying expressions

III. Values Integration


Discuss the importance of law and order in an organization

IV. Material
Prepared board work for exercises

V. Procedure
A. Preliminary Activity
1. Ask the class to tell something about the famous quotation from
former Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim: “Laws are meant to be applied to
all, or none at all”. Lead the discussion on the importance of law in
any organization.
B. Lesson Proper
1. Review the meaning of exponents. Ask the class to give the meaning
of the following:
a. x3
b. 25
c. (3x)4
d. ( x+y)6

2. Use inductive approach in recalling the Laws of Exponents


First Law of Exponents
a. x2.x3
b. m5.m7
c. y4.y
d. (33) (3)
e. ax. ay

Second Law of Exponents


a. (x2)3
b. (n4)5
c. (23)3
d. (42)2
e. (ax)y

Third Law of Exponents


a. (xy)5
b. (xy2)4
c. (x2y3)3
d. (3xy2)
e. (ab)x

Fourth Law of Exponents


a. c.

b. d.

Fifth Law of Exponents


a. ( )2 c. ( )2

b. ( )3 d. ( )2

3. Ask the class to answer Mental Mathematics of Exercise 5.1 on page


226.

4. For individual practice, tell the class to work on Written Mathematics


of Exercise 5.1 (numbers 1-10) on page 226-227.

C. Checking for Understanding

Simplify the following:


1. (2x2) (3x3) 4. (3x2) (y3)2 (2x2y3)
2. (3x2)3 (2x3)2 5.

3.

D. Assignment

Work on Written Mathematics of Exercise 5.1 (numbers 11-20) on page 227


of the textbook.
