Multiplying & Dividing Monomials

A monomial is a single term. For example, 3x, -5xy and 7 are all monomials. When multiplying and dividing monomials, it’s a helpful to write the problem in expanded form. a^2*a^3 = a*a*a*a*a = a^5. (That looks weird. I’ll be happy when blogging supports math software!)

For a quick reteach of multiplying and dividing monomials, check out this video. It also discusses common pitfalls to avoid. [YouTube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6T1BtXKZbs]
