I'm currently on exponents, and noticed that certain problems ill read it one time, and see one problem, then read it another and some of the numbers will be different. I'll read x^6 once, then I'll read it again when I'm told the problem is done wrong. I'll read it as x^-3. This worries me a bit, because I don't know if I'm just being careless, or if something is going on. usually it's in problems that have long strings of variables and exponents smushed together. If I have the opportunity to do the problem over I get it right. Is it carelessness, me practicing too much, or something like dyslexia?
