Reflection: Vertical Alignment Stringing in Zero - Section 1: Start Up


Before you dive into this unit and customize an exponent unit of your own for teaching the Common Core in your classroom, it is worth spending some time thinking about vertical alignment of learning about exponents under the Common Core. I have written my thoughts down in A note about the standards surrounding exponents. If you have reactions or suggestions for additional connections, I would love to hear from you via Comments (at the bottom of the lesson).

Stringing in Zero

Unit 11: Law and Order: Special Exponents Unit
Lesson 2 of 17

Objective: SWBAT to develop an intuitive sense of the laws of exponents through the use of pattern strings. This lesson gets students ready to work on a project to create a book about exponents.

Big Idea: Students can develop their intuition around the laws of exponents by using the patterns formed in strings.
