This is a PowerPoint (2010 version) presentation that uses shapes and patterns to help students discover properties of Integer exponents. The product of powers, quotient of powers and negative exponent properties are explored. A pattern is presented and students are to follow the pattern and come up with a rule for a set of pictures. At the end, the actual properties are displayed with examples. This can be used with the whole class or in groups if students have a device on which to view the file. Great for visual learners and RSP students.
