Card sorts are a great way to gather information about your students' understanding of a topic.
This "Exponent Card Sort" is great to use just after introducing the rules. Twenty-seven cards are included. The cards fall into the following categories: fractions with exponents/dividing powers, power of a power, positive exponents with positive & negative integer bases, exponents of zero, multiplying powers, negative integer exponents.
After sorting the cards based on the rule that applies, students solve the problems. An answer key is included.
