This activity starts with a quick comparison between multiplying monomials and multiplying polynomials. There are three guided practice problems following.
Then, my students and I did another comparison between raising a monomial to powers and raising polynomials to powers. Following there are three guided practice problems.
On the back there is the framework for mixed dominoes practice. I used dominoes to get students moving and engaging with these problems. Around the room was a scavenger hunt of problems. Each small slip of paper had a question on one side and another question's answer on the other side. Student go to a problem and complete it. They found the answer on another slip elsewhere in the room and then completed that problem. My students are much more engaged in practice this way! I print my dominoes on colored paper before cutting them and taping them around the room.
One of the best parts is that this assignment checks itself. Students must get an answer that is on another domino paper!
