 Lesson Vocabulary  
  Exponents A number written above and to the right of another number, variable, or mathematical expression that shows how many times the number, variable, or expression is multiplied by itself.
 Monomials Monomials are the small units or pieces of algebra expressions.  They can be as small as a single number(  2, ─7), or a variable (x, y, a), or a number and variable combination (3d, ─8g, 4x²).

Strategies and Content Practice
Numbers and variables that have exponents can be operated on by the usual math operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  This lesson covers multiplying exponents.
Engage As defined above, monomials are small expressions of an algebra problem.
These monomials may contain exponents like:

When we multiply two or more numbers with exponents, we ADD their exponents.  For example:

When we multiply two or more variables with exponents, we ADD their exponents.  For example:

When numbers are with variables, we call them coefficients.
So monomials with coefficients and variables can be multiplied.  Their exponents are also added.
For example:

The coefficients are multiplied together.
Then the exponents on the variable H are added together.
