Algebra students are asked to use their knowledge of exponent rules to critique two student answers. Students must identify a solution they agree with and construct an argument using sentence starters that contain argumentation language. The exponential expression involves the quotient rule, product rule, and negative exponents rule. The task then asks students to justify their selection and critique by using mathematical language and argumentation and supplies a checklist to remind students to provide a claim, evidence, and warrants.
