    Imagine being the TA (Teacher's Assistant) for a chemistry class. One of the students in the class you are TAing in has been coming to your office hours often, and you are aware that she is struggling quite a bit. She is always very respectful and appreciative of your help whenever you help explain class topics to her. One day, while invigilating an exam, you notice that she is cheating. She had a paper stuffed into her pencil case with formulas which is against the course policy.

    1. What are you going to do once you see this happening?
    2. Would you react differently if this was a student that you didn't know?
    3. Why is this an example of a "power imbalance"?
