 Standard 2.Understands and applies basic and advanced properties of the concepts of numbers
  Level IV [Grade 9-12]
   Benchmark 2
Understands the properties and basic theorems of roots, exponents (e.g., [bm][bn] = bm+n), and logarithms
    Knowledge/skill statement 2
Understands theorems of exponents
Common Core Reference:
    HS.N-RN.1; HS.N-RN.2; HS.F-IF.8
HS.N-RN.1 Explain how the definition of the meaning of rational exponents follows from extending the properties of integer exponents to those values, allowing for a notation for radicals in terms of rational exponents.

HS.N-RN.2 Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.

HS.A-SSE.3 Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the  quantity represented by the expression.

    c. Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions.

HS.F-IF.8 Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function.

    b. Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions.
