Product Description
This resource will guide students to "discover" the properties of exponents, while "holding their hands" a bit. With a calculator in hand, students explore various numerical expressions containing exponents, and try to match what the calculator is telling them to an answer choice still containing an exponent. For example, is two to the third power times two to the fifth power equal to: (A) two to the fifteenth? (B) two to the second? (C) two to the eighth? Students then examine patterns, describe them in words, generalize them algebraically, and create their own problems to demonstrate understanding. Properties addressed include the Product Rule, Quotient Rule, Zero as an Exponent, Negative Exponents, and the Power Rule. Thanks for looking!
