Here's a fun way to get students to practice, make it into a game! This engaging activity allows students to either work together or play competitively with exponents. On the board there are long expressions that can be shortened by writing them with exponents. I have included an answer bank for students so they can check to see if they are answering them correctly.
How to play: Roll the dice to find your Prime Factorization Expression. For example, if you roll a “1” and a “3” you can go to box 1, 3 or 3, 1. If you roll a 6, you can pick any number 1-5! A 6 is a wild! If you get double 6's you can choose anywhere on the board.
If a spot on the board is already filled up, students can choose one of the following rules for their game: lose their turn or roll again.
Play until a partner gets 5 boxes in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) or work together as a team to try to get 3 connect fives!
