This activity covers TEKS 11B for Algebra. It is a DO NOW / Bell Ringer / Mini Lesson / Math Center for students who have already been exposed to the rules for simplifying exponents, rational exponents, and radicals. It is a matching activity that forces students to focus on identifying the base of exponents and the radicands of radicals. Their learning is supported by evaluating exponents through substitution, as well as by notes and answers with workings.
Students can work on it independently or in groups.
