These integers math stations are perfect to engage students in discovering the properties of exponents. Students will develop a deep understanding of exponent properties after completing these math stations. There are four math stations. Three stations are created with the intent that students will discover the “rules” for exponent properties through expanding expressions.
The following math stations are included:
• Multiplying Powers: Students analyze models of multiplying powers. The models expand the powers then cancel and combine. Students discover the exponent rule of multiplying powers.
• Dividing Powers: Students analyze models of dividing powers. The models expand the powers then cancel and combine. Students discover the exponent power of dividing powers.
• Power to a Power: Students analyze models of powers to a power. The models expand the power, then cancels and combines. Students discover the exponent rule of power to a power.
• Exponent Patterns: Students analyze tables of exponents patterns. Students make sense of the patterns and discover what a number raised to zero equals and a number raised to a negative number represents.
These would also be great to use as homework, group work or assessments. A recording sheet and answer sheet are included.
These math centers are aligned with common core 8.EE.A.1
