In our grade 5 math section, we introduce exponents to students. These worksheets help students practice reading and writing exponents, including the special case of powers of ten.
What is an exponent?
An exponent refers to the number of times a number is multiplied by itself. For example, “2 to the power of 3”, written like 23 means:
2 x 2 x 2 = 8
