There are over eighteen printable exponent worksheets on this page. These teach raising a base number to different powers like the squares and cubes, etc.

You can teach the powers of ten as a base, how to simplify exponents, and

The area of a square uses the same Math facts as the formula for making a square.

**s x s = Area**

Squares are numbers multiplied to the second power.

Cubes are numbers multiplied to the third power.

**s x s x s = Cube**

Use these exponents worksheets to practice the multiplication facts necessary to find the squares and cubes. Cube worksheets are below and use the same chart as these square worksheets.

These next Math worksheets introduce the visual element of the square of a number and square roots. It is the basis for how to figure square footage - simply multiply - the simplest Math area formula. side x side = Area = Square Footage The square root of a number is one that multiplies itself to produce the same number: s x s = x 2 x 2 = 4

Having a squares chart seems to be the only real square root formula. If you memorize the squares (the doubles in multiplication) you'll recognize the factors when you are asked for the roots and you'll know most of the squares table for the lower grades.

SPECIAL NOTE: We've noticed that the radicand symbol is simply the division symbol with the left entry crossed out :-)

Have you tried finding an exponent chart? Need a square root table? They can be hard to find, so we have made one for you to use as a Math Poster or to put in your binder.

We've also made handy little cards to cut and share. The formula for roots is the same as the formula of a square, or the area of a square; yet in reverse like difiding. Using an exponents chart makes these easy to see.

**REMEMBER that, when working in reverse from square to root, the answer can be negative or positive.**

s x s = Area

The first practice worksheet shows how to get from squares to cubes with the squares already figured. The second worksheet has blanks to figure both the squares and the cubes. Enjoy!

These two printable exponent worksheets can help a child visualize the words that we use to talk about the cube roots. Use the square root table above to find the cube root since both are on the table. A cube's volume is simply the height times the width times the base sides.

**h x w x b = Volume**

If the cube is a square cube, the sides are all equal and when multiplied give the volume of a cube.

**s x s x s = Volume**

It is a giant help to show young children what a cube looks like with Math manipulatives or a Rubics cube.

Exponents come second in the order of operations for Pre-Algebra. Use this phrase to remember the order: "Please excuse my dear Aunt Sara." or use the phrase PEMDAS and pronounce it as a word, Pemdas. Exponents are simply multiplication so the better your students know their Math facts, the easier it will be to learn the exponents.

Our Math Exponent Worksheets offer the practice. Practice is necessary to become fast using exponents and knowing how to use and find exponents well makes learning science so much easier! Make sure your students know Multiplication with our Multiplication Worksheets.

Remember that negative exponents mean the reciprocal of the base raised to the power of the exponent. They wind up being fractions.

Remember that exponents come second in the order of operations for Pre-Algebra. Use this phrase to remember the order: "Please excuse my dear Aunt Sara." or use the phrase PEMDAS.

First, make certain that your students are relatively handy with the Math facts, especially multiplication and division. Exponents are simply multiplication and square roots are tricky division it helps to have a chart for the roots. If your students aren't handy and need practice use our worksheets or these handy Math games for fast and fun practice.

The basic exponent laws are:

- The exponent tells how many times to multiply the number.
- If the exponent is 0 the simplified answer is 1.
- Negative exponents are signs for dividing.

MathsIsFun has a great explanation of the laws of exponents.
