Exponent Rules Puzzle Set
Students practice rules of exponents in these 5 puzzles of 3 different levels of difficulty. Each puzzle has 16 pieces, finishes at nearly 9 inches square and highlights one of the different rules of exponents. Answer keys are included for each.

In the 2 basic level puzzle, the outside edges are blank, so if students are having difficulty, have them arrange the pieces so the blank sides are on the outside and turn the center letters toward the student.

In the more challenging level, 2 of the puzzles have edges with additional problems/answers in the border to make solving a little more difficult. I always have the students start by pairing up matching squares instead of attempting to put the entire puzzle together at once.

The fifth puzzle is very challenging. It has the distractor problems/answers on the borders as well as very challenging exponent problems. This finishes to a larger size to accommodate those larger problems.

Puzzles can be taped or glued to card stock or scrap paper. Makes a wonderful display on your bulletin board.
