Powers Posters – Powers of 2 to 9

I’m super excited about my new powers posters. I have created individual posters that list the first eight powers of the numbers from 2 to 9.

Today, I finally started hanging up a few decorations. My room is starting to look like a math classroom again!

I’ve been doing a mix of relaxing and prepping my classroom for back to school. Yesterday, my focus was just getting my room clean. It’s crazy to me how dirty and dusty a classroom can get over the summer!

Since sharing the pictures of my new powers posters on twitter/instagram this afternoon, several people have asked me to share the file for the powers posters.

So I thought I should blog about them ASAP since so many other people are also in the midst of setting up their classrooms right now.

By the way, if you’re one of those people looking for decoration ideas, I recently updated my poster page on my blog with pictures of pretty much every poster I’ve created in the past 7 years.

Check out my 7 years of math posters here.

These posters are going to replace the Perfect Square and Perfect Cube posters that I’ve had in my classroom the past few years. I love those posters, but I had so much trouble this past year keeping them stuck to the wall.

My new school has cinder block walls, and they hate me. The best thing about these posters is that I can stick them to my cabinets!

I’m anticipating that these posters will be extremely helpful references to my Algebra 2 students as we tackle exponentials, logarithms, and radicals!

The numbers 2 through 9 are printed on letter-sized paper. I printed mine on card stock and laminated them for extra durability.

The tables of powers are printed on 11 x 17 cardstock. I print on this size paper by sending my print job directly to the copy machine where I have the 11 x 17 paper in the bypass tray.

If you don’t have access to 11 x 17 cardstock or a copy machine with a bypass tray, you can change the PDF print settings under “Multiple” to print it on two pages. Then, you’ll have to tape/glue them together.

Printable Powers Chart for Student Use

I have also created a printable powers chart for student use. It has all the information from the posters condensed onto one page. It is available to download as a PDF.
