Rules of Indices

Using the multiplication and division rules students learn how to evaluate expressions in index notation.  As learning progresses they discover the power rule and why anything to the power of zero equals one.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to simplify the products of indices
  • Most students should be able to simplify the products and quotients of indices
  • Some students should be able to simplify combinations of indices using products and quotients.

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
