              Indices with Negative Powers

              Students learn how to calculate the reciprocal of a number and evaluate indices with negative powers.  As learning progresses they are challenged to consider indices with negative and fractional powers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify and evaluate terms written in index form where an integer base is raised to a negative power.
              • Most students should be able to simplify and evaluate terms written in index form where a decimal base is raised to a negative power.
              • Some students should be able to simplify and evaluate terms written in index form where the base is written as a fraction or mixed number is raised to a negative power.

              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 […]
