Exponents – How Low Can They Go?

Students uncover patterns with exponents and make predictions about the powers of 0 and 1.


  1. Students identify two patterns about exponents.
  2. I reveal some possible patterns and show the correct predictions. Then students predict the 0th and 1st powers.
  3. I unveil the solutions for the 0th and 1st powers and conclude with a tantalizing tease about negative exponents.
  4. I reveal the shocking truth about negative exponents.
