Colouring by Exponent Laws, Superman Logo (2 Versions, 9 sheet mosaics)
A highly engaging unit summary or review activity for exponent laws, packed with collaboration and the motivation of mystery picture! Two versions are included, one with only positive exponents, and one with negative exponents included (both with integer exponents). Students apply the product, quotient, and power rules to simplify each expression and decode the colour-key, then use it to colour their section of the larger mosaic. The image comes together as each of the students do their part! Individual accountability is achieved since every students’ problem set is different.

All my "Colouring by..." math mosaics use the standard colours found in a Crayola 24 pack of coloured pencils. For best results, use the exact colour name match, and stick to one type of colouring medium. Maybe a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun departmental purchase? :)
