# Exponent Foldable

Post Contents

This exponent foldable was inspired by To The Square Inch. I had my Algebra 1 students create an exponent problem of their choice. They had to illustrate it on their exponent foldable. We labeled the exponent, the base, and the power as our vocabulary words.

## Exponent Foldable

We glued our exponent foldable in our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks.

Some of my students chose very large exponents, so they had to write very, very, very small!

I'm LOVING the PEMDAS organizer. I think this makes so much sense! Reminds me of Hopscotch a bit too!

Need to look into this dartboard….

It's supposed to be like hopscotch. 🙂 I got the inspiration for it from here: https://www.rundesroom.com/2012/04/math-journal-sundays-kicked-up-notch.html

I can't find a written explanation of using a dartboard to discuss absolute value anywhere, but I found this gem on one of Dan Meyer's powerpoint slides on abs value. (Link to entire curriculum: http://algebra.mrmeyer.com/

My goal is to start a discussion of who won. Then talk about how what really matters is how far your dart is from the bulls eye. Translate bulls eye to zero on numberline and go from there. We'll see how it works.

He also does an activity where students guess the ages of famous celebrities based on their pictures. You determine who wins by the distance of their guess from the actual age.

Thanks so much for posting these examples! I am going to be starting my year with INBs and am so excited to see examples for high school math 🙂 Now I need to get started on my version before getting back into the classroom. I really like the foldable for the exponents and definitely need to include one that shows the difference between (-2)^4 and -2^4.

Love, love, love the PEMDAS foldable! I need to use it when I teach order of operations this year. I think foldables are a great way for kids to remember math facts!

I started a teaching/fashion blog! Check it out!

I have a question…on the page for 1-2b notes where you have "Evaluate an Expression" at the top, what do you have underneath it?
