This is a quick PowerPoint game on simplifying expressions using exponent rules. It is meant to be used as an bell ringer, or exit ticket activity. Once purchased you will have a zipped file. Inside the zipped file are 2 items. 1 of the items is the actual PowerPoint. The other item included is a pdf document that includes information, recording sheets, and an answer key.

There is a slide that has 3 ornaments on it. To begin, click on an ornament (if you play the PowerPoint on a smart board, you can have someone touch an ornament on the board instead of clicking a mouse). Clicking will take you to a question page. Students will simplify that expression on their recording sheet. Once they have written down (or answered) the first question, click the “back” button on the bottom of the slide to return to the original screen. Repeat process until all expressions have been viewed by students. If you would like students to check their own work, answers are also included on each slide. To view an answer, click on the ornament located on the top, right hand side of the slide. The ornament will move over, revealing the simplified form of an expression.

***Note: Clicking off of the picture shown, may result in the PowerPoint ending! Stay on the color portion
