**this Mystery Picture**to trick them into doing tons of math!

Instead of generating equivalent numerical expressions for random exponents, these problems take it a step further. Each number has two exponents the students have to add, subtract, multiply or divide. The activity also includes powers of 0 and 1, which are always tricky.

It was neat to see how each students' work looked a bit different, depending on what shade they were coloring the Mystery Picture. Like a good math teacher, I made sure the students showed their work for every problem! Some stapled an extra sheet of paper to the activity to ensure they received full credit.

Give one of
