Day 93: An idea that i don’t think worked

20130212_101420

I had this idea to have students compare and contrast a commonly made mistake when starting to work with exponents.  I'm not sure it worked with the group I'm targeting but I would still include this the next time I teach/introduce exponents.  It's extremely important for them to point out the differences here especially when we substitute the SAME number and get different results.
