# Exponent Foldable

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.

WOW! Love it!

Thank you!

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?

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. One of the very few things I remember from my school days. These are great. Thanks for posting them.

I just recently bought your interactive journal from Teachers pay teachers. I love your work. You inspire me. Please keep up the great work. Thank you A seasoned teacher. Cathy

Hi Cathy, I think you must have me confused with someone else. I don't have any resources posted on TpT. But, thanks for visiting my blog!

Thank you so much for posting all this information about interactive notebooks!! I am in the process of starting this with my struggling algebra class and I think it's a great way for them to use their notes for assistance!! You have definitely giving me some great ideas and I appreciate all the picture posts- I'm a total visual learner!! Wish me luck!

You're welcome! I hope interactive notebooks are going great with your algebra class! If you ever need any help, just let me know!

WOW! I just started interactive notebooks in algebra this year and my students were wrestling mightily evaluating an expression today. Those PEMDAS organizers are perfect!! Thanks for the ideas!

Glad you like them!

Awesome!! This would serve great in my class!! I'm assuming the odd numbered pages are the students' "output" portion of the INB? 🙂 I'm contemplating incorporating the INB in my classroom and making sure I understand 😉

Awesome
