To start this unit, we'll look at Math Quill so you can input exponents and

scientific notation with ease. You might have already discovered how to enter

exponents using Math Quill, and even if you haven't here's a quick walkthrough

on what to do. First you want to type the letter x, this will create an x in

your math quill box. Then you want to type carrot symbol, you notice that right

before you type the carrot symbol your cursor bar will appear after the x.

Immediately after you type the carrot key, the cursor bar will move up and in

the position for an exponent, or a superscript. You will then type the number 4

to get the 4 as the exponent. And here's where you can run into trouble. If you

keep continue typing, you will be typing exponents or powers. To move the cursor

bar back down to the main line, you want to hit the right arrow key. Hitting the

right arrow key gets us to the main line and now it continues typing the rest of

our expression. So finish entering this expression, and then try these other

ones. There's also a challenge problem down here. It contains both an exponent

and a fraction.
