Exponent Properties task cards with a twist!
Instead of 24 problems that students must solve, these task cards have 3 problems per card – 2 are correct and 1 is incorrect. Students must decide which problem is incorrect and that is the answer they put on their student work page!
Change up students thinking:
instead of them solving the problems, they must reason through each scenario and check it for correctness!
Cards 1-6: zero exponent, negative exponents, simplify expressions, evaluate exponential expressions
Cards 7-12: Multiplying with the same base, multiplying with scientific notation, multiplying the same base with fractional exponents
Cards 13-18: Power to a power property, power to a power with fraction exponents
Cards 19- 24: Dividing with the same base, dividing with scientific notation, quotient to a power
These task cards are also self-checking!
If the entire set is completed, it will create a quote from. However, if students only complete a part of the cards, each part still spells a portion of the quote, so each part is individually self-checking as well! This makes it super easy for you to gauge progress as you walk around the room or for students to work independently and track their correctness.
