Students learn how to simplify algebraic products using the rules of indices and basic algebraic notation. As learning progresses students begin to apply their learning to evaluate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to simplify the product and quotient of an unknown and number.
- Most students should be able to simplify a product and quotient involving powers.
- Some students should be able to calculate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.
