Exponents are challenging to understand because they require examination of the relationship between symbols, meanings, and exponentiation's algorithmic properties. In this process, knowing how to do the calculations isn't enough to figure out the value of exponential expressions. You also need to understand the logic behind algorithms and the order of the number system. Students typically multiply the base by the exponent, for instance, while computing the numerical value of an exponential equation. In contrast, exponentiation involves laws regarding base and power. This arrangement is problematic because the children grow confused and forget the rules. Students think of exponents as hard and abstract ideas that have nothing to do with real life (İymen & Duatepe-Paksu, 2015). The concept of an exponent is more than just a piece of knowledge that math students must know in order to pass a test. As you may have seen, exponents are used a lot in many different fields, such as science, math, and the financial industry.
