This product is great practice with order of operations involving exponents! After solving expressions, students are able to check themselves and see if they are correct or not (whether their answer is in the grid or not). And after the work is completed, students will have a colored geometric design!
Included in this PDF is the student activity sheet, and the answer sheet with final design shown. This is directly tied to common core standard CC.6.EE.1 in 6th grade (Use the order of operations to evaluate expressions involving exponents). This could also be used as a challenge for 5th grade, or a review for 7th grade.
