              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.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
