I am a teacher in Massachusettes. We have been diagramming numbers such as two to the third (a 3-D cube). One of my students asked me how you would diagram two to the fourth. I have searched through all of my teachers books and cannot seem to find the answer to this question. Is there a way to diagram this? If there is, how would you do this?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
I would use a tree diagram to illustrate powers. For example for powers of 2 start with a tree with two branches.
Powers with a base other than 2 can also be described with a tree diagram, for example
Trees can be useful in many areas of mathematics. For example the tree for 2^3 can be used to describe all possibilities when a coin is tossed three times.
