Everything you need to teach the rules of exponents and roots, including guided notes and assessments.
Please download the preview to see more details!
The topics are arranged into 5 days with handouts for guided notes and practice problems.
Day 1: Intro to exponents and real world application to areas
Day 2: Product and Power Rule: discover the patterns of exponents and why these rules work
Day 3: Quotient Rule and Integer Exponents: Extend patterns to see why negative exponents make numbers smaller
Day 4: Roots: Find square roots, evaluate cube and fourth roots, define perfect squares and perfect roots, locate roots on a number line
Day 5: Equations with Exponents and Roots: Extend the use of exponents and roots by solving equations involving both
-Quiz and 2 tests with keys

-Exponent Rules Card Sort Activity
A total of 18 student pages, plus answer keys for all.
In the download, you will receive PDFs. Editable Word documents are also included for everything except the card sort.
Note: Guided Notes sheets are meant to be filled out with teacher guidance. They are designed to allow students to discover the patterns of exponents and the exponent rules. Many of the charts on the guided notes have a grayed area. The white area should be filled out first using what students know. The grayed area can then be filled out by extending the patterns from the white area. My students do not use calculators for these notes. It is a struggle for some students, but they are more likely to pick up on patterns without relying on a calculator!
Common Core Standards:
Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions.
Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational
Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions.
