All the resources you need to create a learning station to help your students understand and master Powers and Exponents.

The skill taught in this station is what is a power (or an exponent).

Students will

  • learn that exponents are repeated multiplication
  • simplify terms with an exponent (for example, 3 to the second power = 9)
  • practice substituting values in for terms (for example, solve a to the third power when a = -2)
  • convert between expanded form and a term with an exponent
  • practice creating terms with an exponent that involve variable or numbers (or both)

This station is designed to be run without the teacher's need for direct instruction.

The station provides the student with quality tutorials as well as lots of practice with immediate feedback so that the student can truly master the skill. Thus, this station can be used for remediation when working on more complex skills in the upper grades, but the student hasn't grasped this concept - which is preventing him/her from doing the grade level work.

Resource Pack includes:

  • 3 Reteach Worksheets
    • These worksheets are designed to teach the student the skill without the need of direct instruction. Critical thinking skills and guided practice are utilized within each worksheet. Preview the Reteach Worksheets here

  • 2 Maze Worksheets (Extension Activity)
    • A fun way to practice the skill while still getting immediate feedback. Each worksheet guides students through a maze by correctly answering the skill. Preview the maze worksheets here.

  • 1 Color by Numbers Worksheet (Sailboat) - extension activity
    • Another fun way to practice the skill while getting immediate feedback are these color by numbers worksheets. Students must correctly solve Powers and Exponents problems. As they do, they are told what color corresponds to what number on the grid. As students color in the grid, the image appears. Preview Color by Numbers for Powers and Exponents worksheets here.

  • 3 Student Tracking Forms
    • These are designed to help the student know which activity to do next as they progress through the activities to obtain mastery. One is filled out with online links, and one utilizes only the resources in this packet in case you do not have access to technology in the classroom. You can see it in the Preview video

  • Pennants to Celebrate Student Success
    • One is in color, the other is black and white so that students can fill out. View it in the preview video

  • A document with 10 links to online tutorial videos
    • These are links to tutorial videos that you can send the student to for help with their reteach, or use in the classroom as reinforcement

  • 3 Quizzes
    • Short, 11 question quizzes to measure whether or not your student has mastered the skill and is ready to be progressed. If they have not, they can move on to the next set of activities on the skill (provided).
