PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Valentine’s Day twist coupled to solving exponential equations with the laws of exponents in this activity/worksheet geared for Algebra I students. All equations are solved WITHOUT use of logarithms. Spice up regular practice with applying exponent laws to equations with the Valentine themed answer messages. Built-in message makes grading the practice a snap!

The Holiday Fun:

Students solve 15 random problems (out of 26 problems) before receiving one of the 6 Valentine cards. Students use answers to decode the Valentine’s hidden message. I enjoy hand selecting the recipient of the message, matching the message to the student’s personality. Since the Valentine is addressed “To My Wonderful Teacher,” students are essentially sending you, the teacher, the Valentine when they turn in their work. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!

The Content:

Find 26 exponential equations that can be solved easily with the rules of exponents (Rules: Product, Quotient, Power to a Power, Zero power, Negative Exponents). Easily differentiate by giving struggling students a scaffolded version of the same worksheet. Also find a worked out solution key.

Note: Problems are identical to this Exponential Equations Hangman.

★Common Core Standards: SSE.A.2, SSE.B.3c, REI.B.3

What makes this product a must-have?

Self-checking: Know at a glance if students completed the activity correctly.

Novel Practice: Mixing-up that traditional worksheet perks up kids.
