This is a puzzle that students will put together using what they know about the product and power rules to simplify expressions containing exponents. This is a fun and hands-on way to have students practice their simplifying skills. It allows for differentiation because not every problem will need to be done in order to complete the puzzle. This is best done in pairs, and is a great way to get students talking to each other about math! My students love these puzzles, and I hope yours do too.
