Get your students up and hopping from station to station in this high-interest activity where students figure out what goes in the box to make the exponential expressions equal. Students can work in partners, small groups, or independently as they complete this activity. You could also use them for the game, "Scoot." My students love doing these types of stations. They like working together, and they also like that they get immediate feedback for their answers. There is a student worksheet that you can print for students to write and solve their problems on. I have also attached the key for you to check.
See my preview for more ideas, directions and to see the exact types of expressions that are in these stations.
This is just one of 11 activities in my Negative and Zero Exponents bundle which can be purchased for $4.00 at:
Common Core standards include both 8.EE.A.1 and HSN.RN.A.2, but the activity could be applicable to other grade levels as well.
Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions. For example, 32 × 3-5 = 3-3 = 1/33 = 1/27.
Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.
