              Indices with Fractional Powers

              Students use reciprocals to evaluate indices with fractional and decimal powers.  Using square and cube numbers and their roots they progress on to more complex terms where the base can also be a fraction.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to evaluate an expression in index form with a faction of ½, 1/3, ¼ as the power.
              • Most students should be able to evaluate an expression in index form with any fraction as the power.
              • Some students should be able to solve equations in index form where the power is the unknown.

              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 […]
