Laws of Exponents Puzzle

I recently discovered Tarsia Puzzles and they are my new favorite go-to activity for practicing math problems. In this lesson, I used them to practicing power to a power, product rule, and quotient rule for exponents. The students had to correctly work out 30 problems to piece the puzzle together and they had way more fun practicing this way than a worksheet. I overheard some great discussions about the rules and misconceptions (which they can self-identify when they don't find the answer they are looking for).

Here is the link to my TpT store, where for $3, you can buy the Laws of Exponents puzzle.

  2. Yes, I too would love to borrow your activity for my 8th graders, but the link does not work. Would it be possible to receive an email of the activity? Thank you for your willingness to share your creations, it looks like a lot of fun!

  3. Help! Link didn't work for me either. Thanks!

  4. Would love to use this resource next week! Any chance you can email it to since the link doesn't work? Thanks!
