Help your Algebra and 8th grade math students discover the properties of exponents with these engaging stations. Focus is placed on conceptual understanding with the exponent rules. There are four math stations. Three stations are created with the intent that students will discover the “rules” for exponent properties through expanding expressions.

Stations Included

• Multiplying Powers: Students analyze models of multiplying powers. The models expand the powers then cancel and combine. Students discover the exponent rule of multiplying powers.
• Dividing Powers: Students analyze models of dividing powers. The models expand the powers then cancel and combine. Students discover the exponent power of dividing powers.
• Power to a Power: Students analyze models of powers to a power. The models expand the power, then cancels and combines. Students discover the exponent rule of power to a power.
• Exponent Patterns: Students analyze tables of exponents patterns. Students make sense of the patterns and discover what a number raised to zero equals and a number raised to a negative number represents.

I loved this station activity. My students were so engaged during the activity. They were all able to learn the exponent properties and review the parts they didn't remember. I really liked how the examples showed them to expand and either regroup or simplify the fractions rather than just teaching the shortcut rules.

Easy to use in multiple ways! Love that kids are learning from patterns and examples.

One purchase is for one teacher/family. You may only use this item with students in a single classroom/family.
