The exponent rules explain how to solve various equations that — as you might expect — have exponents in them.
But there are several different kinds of exponent equations, which can seem daunting… at first. However, like most math tactics, there are teaching strategies you can use to make exponent rules easy to follow.
Subtracting is the opposite of addition, something your students have learned well before exploring the world of fractions. Subtracting fractions is a little bit more complicated than regular deduction, but there is a teaching strategy that makes the process as easy as one, two, three!

Well, not really. But understanding negative exponents is an important building block for high school-level math courses, and it’s also a concept many students find challenging. When you gradually build on your students’ knowledge, you’ll ensure they’re ready to tackle challenging problems in and out of the classroom.
What drives growth in your school community?
It could be your school’s culture, a focus on teacher professional development, or even prioritizing useful teaching strategies. However, none may be as important as school mission statements, which are essential for student development and effective learning.
School mission statements indicate the priorities and goals of a school community, and can have an incredible impact on student achievement.
You dedicate endless resources to make sure students learn curriculum essentials, in preparation for standardized tests and new grade levels.
But as soon as they’ve learned the material and written the test, it seems like their memories are completely wiped clean. Students are left confused and teachers become frustrated.
This scenario is extremely common, yet highly preventable. Students and teachers tend to cram information into their brains as quickly as possible. But in the long run, retention falls flat.
Distributed practice is proven to be the best studying method for effective learning that lasts. And if you want students to study this way, distributed practice should become a schoolwide teaching strategy.
