Diffy http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_326_g_1_t_1.html 
A virtual manipulative for practice of subtraction (taking differences). Starting with four black numbers in the corners of a black square, students find the differences (larger minus the smaller) between the pair of numbers on each side of the square. The computer is programmed to not accept an incorrect answer, so that when an incorrect difference is entered, the number field is blanked out and the student can try again.

Options: Whole Numbers, Integers (positive and negative), Fractions, Decimals, Money (When working with Fractions, the difference of two fractions is a fraction that can be written in many different ways. Type in both the numerator and denominator before pressing Enter, but you can write the fraction in most any equivalent form. A difference of zero can be written as 0/1.)

Exponents

 

Exponent PowerPoint Lesson http://mathforum.org/te/exchange/hosted/link/LFTMZ-Exponents.ppt 
This is a PowerPoint lesson on exponents designed with the middle schooler in mind. The lesson uses color, sound, and animation to effectively illustrate necessary concepts and procedures. An analogy between repeated additions (e.g., 3 x 5 = 3+3+3+3+3) and repeated multiplications (e.g., 3 ^ 5 = 3*3*3*3*3) is used to motivate and explain the concept of exponent. The times sign (x) is used for repeated additions, and the caret (^) for repeated multiplications. Students first practice using the caret on their calculators and by hand. Then the positional notation for exponent is introduced with further practice. Optional extensions are included for zero to the zero power and negative exponents.
