Resources for Exponents (5.NBT.A.2)

The last sentence of Common Core State Standard 5.NBT.A.2 asks fifth grade students to "use whole number exponents to denote powers of 10." Several teacher-authors have created fantastic resources to help your students with this skill.

Multiplying and Dividing by Powers of 10, available through Mike's Math Mall, gives you an instructional PowerPoint presentation, notes, worksheets, poster, and a quiz.

Fifth grade teacher Dennis McDonald offers task cards and printables to reinforce this skill in Super Powers of Ten, Set A and Set B.

If some (or all) of your students are ready to work with negative exponents, check out Multiplying by Powers of 10 Task Cards by Hello Learning.

And for those students who are up to an even greater challenge, grab this Negatives with Exponents Dolphin Coloring Picture, created by Briana Burke.

As a teacher of fifth grade math, I can see how all of these products would work together beautifully to really reach all of my students in their study of exponents. It's time for a shopping spree!
