Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents

This lesson helps students understand two foundational exponential properties: The Product and Quotient Properties of Exponents. Students will collaborate to formulate a rule for these properties. Ultimately, students should conclude that when the same bases are being multiplied, exponents will be added; and when the same bases are being divided, exponents will be subtracted. As the lesson progresses, students will apply these rules to simplify expressions of various difficulties.

###
Let's Analyze and Compute Fractions!

Students will compare fractions with unlike denominators to determine whether a given answer to a real-world problem is correct using context and computational skills.

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Centers in Subtraction

**Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts. **

###
When Life Gives You Lemons

**Students create input-output tables to find numerical patterns and relationships in the real world through the process of making lemonade.**

###
Using Linear Equations to Count Pecans

**Students will write linear equations in point-slope form given two points via a verbal description.**

###
Who Ran the Farthest?

Students determine by using fractions which fourth-grade teacher ran the farthest.

###
Frontier Days Heros Solve Division Equations to Unite our Nations

Students will be able to creatively and confidently solve one-and two-step problems involving multiplication and division, including interpreting the remainder. In addition, students will be working collaboratively by using critical thinking and activating prior knowledge to solve math operation skills in a real-world situation.

###
More Super Duper Math

**Students will gather objects to compare quantities and justify their answers pictorially and verbally. They will use their vocabulary posters and accountable talk menus to discuss with their partners. **

###
Understanding Multiplication Using Cell Phone Plans

Students will multiply to compare cell phone plans in order to determine the best deal and to connect the standard algorithm to other multiplication strategies and place value in the real world.

###
The Picture Graph Party

Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

Make a Hit with Decimals

Students will compare and order decimals using baseball batting statistics. Through discovery, students will determine the top six out of eleven players to be recruited for the school’s baseball team, present their findings, and explain reasons for their orderings. From students’ explanation, strategies for ordering decimals will be determined and used to adjust subsequent lessons.
