This is a double sided PDF foldable that explains the Properties of Exponents. Each “rule” is explained in written form and includes an example.
When printed the foldable is slightly larger than a composition notebook page; therefore, if you plan to put this foldable in a composition sized interactive notebook then you will want to set your printer to scale the document to 95% so that it will fit.
