A fun way to practice the properties of exponents!
In this activity, students solve different problems with equivalent answers. The 12 different problems practice the following properties:
Product of Powers Property
Power of a Power Property
Power of a Product Property
Quotient of Powers Property
Power of a Quotient Property
Negative Exponent Rule
Once solve, students partner up and compare answers and methods of solving the problems. Then the pair of students fill out a reflections page, in which they discuss and describe in words different methods of solving each problem.
This activity encourages students to collaborate and discuss problems. If students come up with different answers, they can work together to figure out who is correct.
This activity is part of a bundle, which includes interactive notes, a pre- and post-assessment, a puzzle and a partner practice worksheet.
