Engage students as they practice applying the rules for the properties of exponents. I created this puzzle for use with my Foundations of Math 1 class (9th Grade).
The puzzle is a 4 x 4 grid that contains problems requiring students to multiply powers, divide powers, and raise a power to a power. All of the problems have a numeric base and all exponents are positive. A few of the answers are written as fractions with the power in the denominator, however, negative exponents are not introduced at this point.
