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).
- 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.
