This activity introduces exponent laws (quotient rule, product rule, power to a power) to students through their own personal discovery. There are three packets.
Packet 1: Exploration/Work
Packet 2: Questions dealing with exploration
Packet 3: Practice
It is recommended that students finish the first page of packet 1, then the first page of packet 2, then the first page of packet. After they are done with the first page of each packet, move onto the second pages. By printing off three different packets it allows for students to easily reference their work.
