RESOURCE: ONECARD | Metropolitan Library System
ONEcard is a partnership between the Metropolitan Library System and area schools. Students enrolled in a ONEcard account are able to use their student IDs to access Metro Library resources. Students are automatically enrolled in ONEcard when they register to attend school, unless their parent or guardian opts them out. ONEcard accounts are exempt from overdue fines on materials, but students are responsible for lost or damaged materials.
ONEcard account holders may:
• Check out up to 10 books or audiobooks at a time (no DVDs, Launchpads, Playaway Views, or music CDs)
• Use all Library online resources, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, and databases
• Use library computers

ACTIVITY: Exponent Properties with Products
Learn how to simplify exponents when the numbers are multiplied with each other. We'll learn that (a*b)^c is the same as a^c*b^c, a^c*a^d is same as a^(c+d) and (a^c)^d is equal to a^(c*d). We will also solve examples based on these three properties. Created by Sal Khan and CK-12 Foundation. ©2020 Khan Academy
