I have provided 3 pictures below. One explains all of the laws of exponents to us. Make sure to take a look at that chart to familiarize yourself with those laws. The next 2 pictures are exponent problems that have MISTAKES in them. Our goal is to identify those mistakes, try to understand what the student was thinking when that mistake was made, and figure out how to correct that mistake.  Underneath the pictures I have included a google form that will help you organize your thoughts about each picture.
