1 8th grade lesson

BACKGROUND: This lesson introduces integer exponents. It also addresses multiplying and dividing expressions with integer exponents and raising a power to a power. Students will learn the properties of exponents and use them to evaluate expressions with exponents, thereby generating equivalent expressions. Introduce: Explain integer exponent Vocabulary: square root, exponent, raising a power, integer Ask probing questions to model the teach strategy Close reading: and correctly, use problems from past assessments DURING INSTRUCTION: Teach Guided instruction (I do, we do, you do) 1. Multiplying powers with the same base MODEL- I DO, ADDITIONAL EXAMPLE: WE DO 2. Rule for dividing powers with the same base MODEL- I DO, ADDITIONAL EXAMPLE: WE DO POP: use models and visuals for stud ents who need it, use the video 3. Explain in your own words how to divide powers with the same base MODEL- I DO, ADDITIONAL EXAMPLE: WE DO 4. Quick check YOU DO 5. Quick write on summary: quick write: rate your learning and summarize the lesson, use three academic languages in your summary. YOU DO (FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT) Additional examples How does writing out the factors for each expression help you understand the rule for multiplying? Practice- Independent: Practice problems on the smart board Complete ten problems using same bases Further investigation How does writing out the factors for 35 x 43 show you that you cannot just add the exponents? Key Questions: How is (32 )4 different from (32) (34)? Discussion and Processing: Assess and re-teach Have students completed the practice problem, reteach those that responded incorrectly. Complete the work in small group AFTER INSTRUCTION Closure/ Ticket out the door Summary of the lesson’: and rate your skill Ticket out the door: Provide a problem where students model the integer exponent
