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.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
