Engage your students with the laws of exponents through 3 different card sort activities. These activities are to be used after students have been introduced to the laws of exponents (product rule, quotient rule, and power raised to a power rule).
Students will have the opportunity to practice simplifying exponents through 3 different card sort activities. Each question card contains an expression that needs to be simplified using 1 of the three rules from above.The 20 question cards do not contain exponents that are zero or negative nor do they require the students to use more than one rule to simplify the expression.
Activity 1 - Students sort the question cards according to the rule needed to simplify the expression. Activity 2 - Students will simplify the question cards and match the card to its equivalent answer card. Activity 3 - Slapdown Showdown! Instructions for each activity are included within the document.
