This activity has the students cut out basic exponential and root equations, such as, x^3=64 or x=square root of 81. The students then solve the equations and paste the equation next to the correct answer on the answer sheet.
The teacher will be able to assess whether the students did the work correctly by knowing how many equations go with each answer. This exercise is a good way for students to become familiar with exponents and basic roots.
My students have enjoyed this exercise because it is like solving a puzzle, and the students have a "product" when they are done. I have posted the finished products in the classroom, which serves as a good reminder of the exponents and their roots.
