This is a worksheet designed for algebra students developing skills in the rules of exponents. The task works to develop a comprehensive understanding of the rules by asking students to critique samples of student work that address common errors. Students are also asked to think critically about how order of operations might affect the result when simplifying exponential expressions. This worksheet would be best used when students have a strong knowledge of exponents, so that they are able to recognize errors, rather than believe them to be true.
