Math Quill Exponents - Visualizing Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    To start this unit, we'll look at Math Quill so you can input exponents and
  • 0:04 - 0:08
    scientific notation with ease. You might have already discovered how to enter
  • 0:08 - 0:11
    exponents using Math Quill, and even if you haven't here's a quick walk-through
  • 0:11 - 0:15
    on what to do. First you want to type the letter x, this will create an x in
  • 0:15 - 0:20
    your math quill box. Then you want to type carrot symbol, you notice that right
  • 0:20 - 0:24
    before you type the carrot symbol your cursor bar will appear after the x.
  • 0:24 - 0:28
    Immediately after you type the carrot key, the cursor bar will move up and in
  • 0:28 - 0:33
    the position for an exponent, or a superscript. You will then type the number 4
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    to get the 4 as the exponent. And here's where you can run into trouble. If you
  • 0:36 - 0:41
    keep continue typing, you will be typing exponents or powers. To move the cursor
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    bar back down to the main line, you want to hit the right arrow key. Hitting the
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    right arrow key gets us to the main line and now it continues typing the rest of
  • 0:49 - 0:53
    our expression. So finish entering this expression, and then try these other
  • 0:53 - 0:57
    ones. There's also a challenge problem down here. It contains both an exponent
  • 0:57 - 0:58
    and a fraction.
