Blog Log #2: What Dogs Teach Us

Read the article here.

I was originally interested by this article because it is on the subject of pets. I am pursuing veterinary medicine as a future career, so this is a subject that I enjoy reading about. I appreciated how the author took a darker subject, human issues, and revealed how to improve them through watching how other species act. I also enjoyed how the article was serious, but contained humorous parts. I agree with his perspective on life; humans judge other humans for their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and more. Dogs, however, judge others by their actions, and teach us to love. Sometimes, when I feel upset, I go hug my dog. She emits rays of happiness, and that happiness transfers to everyone she meets. I feel we can all learn from dogs to improve our lives.


Exponent Laws

One of the exponent laws I’ve learned this week is multiplying and dividing exponents with the same base. 



Rule) When multiplying two exponents with the same base, you add the exponents.


  • 1² · 1²
  • = 1(² ᐩ ²)
  • = 1⁴



Rule) When dividing two exponents with the same base, you subtract the exponents.


  • 1² ÷ 1²
  • = 1
