With Personalized Learning on the upswing, I created this Law of Exponents Unit for my class, learned a LOT about Personalized Learning along the way, and went back and perfected it for TPT and my future classes. Please check out the preview to see some samples of the materials and a list of all materials included, but the unit begins with individual guided notes / practice for each of the five exponent laws which can easily take some students up to a week or more to complete.
The practice following the five mini-lessons is in the form of tiered worksheets that get progressively harder with each tier. The Tier One worksheet includes exponential expressions with one exponent law per problem, Tier Two includes expressions with two exponent laws per problem, Tier Three includes three laws, Tier Four has four laws, and finally, the worksheet that only two of my students even attempted, the Tier Five worksheet includes un-simplified exponential expressions with all five laws. Answer keys are supplied with everything in the unit, as well as an invaluable "Steps for Simplifying Exponential Expressions" which has been a lifesaver to some of my students.
All of the above is perfect for incorporating personalized learning, and I invite you to see my preview for ALL of my ideas on how to personalize the lessons depending on your classroom population, but I REALLY like the fun and challenging activities. There are two activities included, but there are numerous activities that can be performed with each of them, a further explanation of how I built this to be a personalized learning unit. The different modifications and/or ways to incorporate or perform each activity are included in the unit.
I taught this unit using this material for two weeks and could have spent longer. If you need materials for a Law of Exponents unit, I think you'll find all you need for a fun, well-crafted, personalized unit right here. Please don't hesitate to ask questions if needed prior to purchase.
