__Exponent Rules__

__Exponent Rules__

**Student Learning Objective:**

Students will be able to apply the exponent rules to simplify an exponent expression as measured by a "Ticket Out The Door" activity.

## Apps being used during the lesson

## Anticipatory Set

**(7 MINUTES)**

Using the YouTube app, play this video (or play the embedded video below). Have students look for the Product of Powers and Zero Exponent Rule. Starting the class with this video will be engaging and relevant to the exponent rules. Once the video concludes, have the students share out on what they think the two rules you had them look for mean.

## Lesson Introduction

**(23 MINUTES)**

After the video, students should be primed for the introduction of the exponent rules. Using the Prezi HERE (or playing it in the embedded window below), have students complete the exponent rules in their algebra notebooks through Direct Instruction.

**There will be plenty of time in the lesson for extra examples. If students are dragging through the copying of each rule, use the Stopwatch app to speed up the lesson**

## Guided Practice

**(17 MINUTES)**

Once the students have copied down the exponent rules through the Prezi, work with the students to simplify exponent expressions using the exponent rules introduced in the lesson. Use ShowMe to demonstrate the problems as a whiteboard app. If there are students missing or you sense that there is a need for further review, you can easily record your less (tutorial here).

**Sample problems to pull from**

Based on the temperature of the classroom with competency, there are plenty of problems to choose from.

## Closing

**(4 MINUTES)**

It is assumed that students will not have a complete grasp of all exponent rules by the end of a single period of instruction. Instead, breaking it up into two to three class periods is ideal. For the Day 1 closing, have students demonstrate understanding of Product of Powers. This will help guide the instruction and differentiate for Day 2.
