Differentiate instruction for your Algebra 1 students by having them work in stations. Students will practice exponent properties that include the product of powers, power of powers, quotient, and negative exponents properties.
Students should be divided into two groups. The blue group should consists of struggling learners and the red group should consists of more advanced learners. While the red problems are more rigorous, students do not really see a notable difference. Therefore, they do not know they are grouped based on ability.
This activity can be formatted in a few ways. Stations can either be posted around the room, or they can be passed from group to group after a certain amount of time.
This product includes an instruction sheet, work pages for students, red station problems, blue station problems, and an answer key.
