For this activity, I cut up the half sheets and post them randomly around my room. The bottom of each half-sheet is an exponential expression, and the top of the half-sheet is the previous problem’s answer. I give students the answer doc and they can start at whatever half sheet they’re closest to. Once they simplify the exponential expression (with positive exponents only), they search for the answer on a different half sheet, write the name of the President, and complete the new problem.
There are a total of 15 problems, and students need to know how to use the product rule, quotient rule, power rule, zero exponents, and negative exponents.
