Create a way to display all the laws of exponents. You can create a poster, create a computer presentation, create a digital file for display, or some other method for displaying all rules of exponents together. The following should be included:

· Definition of Base

· Definition of Exponents

· Zero Exponent

· Negative Exponent

· Multiplying Exponents of Same Base

· Dividing Exponents of Same Base

· Exponent raised to another exponent

Each rule should be defined by title, algebraic representation of rule, and 2 examples of the rule.

Write and perform a song that describes the exponent rules. You must turn in all lyrics (and music or music references). All performances should be recorded onto a movie file to turn in digitally. The following should be included:

· Zero Exponent

· Negative Exponent

· Multiplying Exponents of Same Base

· Dividing Exponents of Same Base

· Exponent raised to another exponent

Performances of these songs will be graded based on the digital file submitted. If the student chooses to perform live for the class, they will receive extra points.

Write a fictional story – topic is choice of the author (topic and story should be suitable for school work). Within the contents of the story, use the laws of exponents (these laws can be written out directly, or pulled into the storyline numerically or through examples that show the rules at work). Stories should be complete. Illustrations are optional. The following should be included:

· Title Page

Definition of Base

· Definition of Exponents

· Zero Exponent

· Negative Exponent

· Multiplying Exponents of Same Base

· Dividing Exponents of Same Base

· Exponent raised to another exponent

All books should be book quality. You can use software to create your book and turn in a digital file, use online resources to create a book and turn it in a digital file.

Write a handbook for 8th grade students regarding operations of exponents. Each “rule page” should include the name of the rule, the definition of the rule, and three examples of the rule. The three examples must be variable expression and may come from explore learning or another source. The following should be included:

· Title Page

Table of Contents

· Definition of Base

· Definition of Exponents

· Property of Zero Exponent

· Property of Negative Exponent

· Multiplying Exponents of Same Base

· Dividing Exponents of Same Base

· Exponent raised to another exponent

Each rule should be defined by title, algebraic representation of rule, and 2 examples of the rule.
