Squares, Cubes, and Fractional Exponents

     I have decided that this year I am not going to be able to get a full blog post done! It seems like this is one of the busiest, craziest years I have had in a very long time. Everyone I talk to in my district feels the same way so I am not alone, thank goodness. How about all of you? Are you feeling the same stress that I am? Or is it just my district? Just letting you know that the foreseeable future is going to be short posts with a few pictures. At least that way I will still be able to do some reflection and sharing with all of you.
      The other day, I was browsing the teacherspayteachers site, one of my favorites, and I found a great interactive notebook page from RoxyGirl on Fractional Exponents. I like the way she laid out the problems so I bought it and used it with my 8th grade Pre-Algebra class. I really like to have a practice page to go on the left so I created a sheet for the kiddos to do.  I also had them write the answers on the bottom half of the sheet as well. This was a great extension of the lesson but a bit difficult for my lower level students. 

I cannot show the right hand page because of copyright but go to  RoxyGirl at teacherspayteachers to see or buy it. One of my goals in my never ending quest to help my students with their number sense is to show the different forms of numbers. These notes fit into that category perfectly.

     I am absolutely loving my Interactive Notebook this year. There are so many pages and topics I have to share and hopefully I can do these short posts until everything calms down a bit.

Til next time,
