Quotes from TpT purchasers:

"Great resource! I actually laminated it so it will keep!"

"One of the best TPT purchases I have purchased. Quick and easy to use, my students enjoy playing it, challenging questions. Thanks"

"My students really enjoyed this game! Who would have thought that using playing cards would be a great way to randomize problems that students would actually enjoy. Thank you!"

"This is one of the best resources I have bought from TPT! Thank you!"

"I love this product and so do my students. If I had assigned 50 problems it would have been a nightmare, but instead, they ask if they could "play" again tomorrow! Very creative and gave me the opportunity to have those teachable moments. I used this in my 8th grade classroom and the students were so proud of themselves! The peer teaching was awesome. Thanks for the "last minute" help from TPT, my dull lesson became FUN."

This is a math game in which one pair of students competes against another. The first team selects a card from a deck of cards and answers the matching question on the activity sheet (example 4 of hearts). The 2 students work cooperatively to obtain an answer. If correct they get a point, if not the other team can get the rebound point. Then team 2 selects a card, discusses the answer and so on. It is cooperative because the 2 students work together, yet competitive because it pits one team against another. The students have fun and get the math work done. As well, the students can work on this activity alone, can be used as a review.



60 cards. MIX & MATCH 30 cards have an Exponent Rules question and 30 cards have the corresponding answers. Each student can be given either a Question Card or an Answer Card, and they need to get up from their desks, and find the match for their card! A favorite with students! Have the students put the question and corresponding answer on the chalk board or SmartBoard! Great for review.


Folding Activity to understand the concept of Negative Exponents and how they can be converted to a fractional form.
