              Indices with Negative Powers

              Students learn how to write indices with negative powers as fractions.  This lesson builds on using the multiplication and division rules of indices to simplify and evaluate terms.  More able students are challenged to write unit fractions using index notation
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to write a negative power of one as a fraction.
              • Most students should be able to write a negative power as a fraction.
              • Some students should be able to convert between a fraction and index notation.
