Many students have difficulty working with negative integer exponents. These four sets of practice problems and the accompanying hint sheets will provide that all important structure and support as students explore the concept. These worksheets may be used traditionally, or as four separate centers/stations of progressing difficulty.
This is 8 levels of carefully-designed laws of exponents practice. It's a great review/practice activity. It begins with basic expressions that require the use of just one property and builds in complexity. The final level combines fractions and negative numbers.My experience:I printed the levels on a variety of colored paper and spread them out on a desk.
Algebra students connect what they already know about finding areas of shapes to finding "areas" of rectangles, triangles and circles with monomial side lengths. In this activity, students find the areas of rectangles, triangles and circles by multiplying terms with exponents, practicing "exponent times exponent" and "exponent raised to an exponent".
Exponents Practice: Part 1 by Christina Foran. This is a video tutorial that shows students how to solve problems involving exponents. Each problem is narrated in American Sign Language. (This is my first time using green screen, so please excuse the blurriness. I plan on getting better backdrops and lighting equipment within the next month.) Enjoy! And if you have any questions or still need help, please post in the comments.

This practice activity provides students a chance to show their understanding of the power properties. There are some higher order thinking problems where students have to determine the exponent value for an expression with a given answer vs simply evaluating an expression.
