Exponent Laws Puzzle

 In Math class we did an activity that consisted of building a puzzle using equations containing exponents in groups of four. We had to match each equation with the right answer and start building the puzzle from that. Overall, I think the activity went pretty well. My group and I were successful both when working together, and in practicing the exponential laws that we learned in Math class. As a group, we managed to participate equally and without any major disagreements, which allowed us to work efficiently. A core value that I personally think I was the most successful in was Communicator because as a group we all managed to talk and decide who did what, in order to be practical. Any time we would disagree we just talked and solved the problem quickly. We were also very inclusive, and every member of the group had an important role to play. All of us practiced exponential rules and helped each other when we were having difficulties. I core value I could use more work in is Innovative, because even though we managed to work well and succeed, we had no particular or original way of doing it. We kind of just solved equations randomly, and maybe doing it in a specific way would have helped us solving the puzzle faster.

Here are some pictures of the process:

  1. Thank you for your reflection, Laura. You did a great job of connecting the activity to the Graded core values.
