              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.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
