Cluster 1: Extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents. (Algebra 2–Major Cluster) Don’t sort clusters from Major to Supporting, and then teach them in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters. Learning Objectives Review the rules of exponents. Review the definition of negative exponents and zero as an exponent. In this section, we review the rules of exponents.
