Laws of Exponents

Laws of Exponents

StAIR (Stand Alone Instructional Resource) that can be used to teach the laws of the exponents to independent learners.  Can also be used as a review for students who have been introduced to the topic in previous math classes.  Integrates video, audio, music, text, games, and practice problems.

It was not mentioned in the introduction, but the student is not expected to complete all activities, though that is certainly an option.  Rather the student is expected to choose those activities that best help him/her to thoroughly understand the topic.

This acitivty clearly defined the concept of exponents. Using links to videos and websites helped explain concepts from various perspectives. I liked the different approaches to interacting with the material through games, videos, and interactives. The base camp is a good dashboard providing choices for the user to pick.  The lesson was very heavy in content and would benefit from more than one session to fully cover all the material.

Technical Remarks:

The links were sometimes a two step process and it would be easier if the link would go directly to the activity.

Very informative and extremely interactive.  It lost some of my attention because of the length.  I liked the fact that the show incorporated many different types of websites, videos, quizzes, etc.  I thought it was great for covering exponents.  I wasn't sure how much time would be spent in class doing something like this?  Or maybe it could be broken up into separate class periods?  I thought the "base camp" idea was good since it allowed students to dictate the way that they wanted to learn about the concept, whether it was reading or video, etc. It really allowed students to explore UDL strategies of representation, expression, and engagement.

Technical Remarks:

I had some timing issues, but I'm not sure if that was because the show was opened in Keynote instead of Powerpoint.
