Previously, I said that we would have another look at solving equations this week to build your confidence. Start by watching this video:
Then try the fluency questions.
For what does the “I” in BIDMAS stand? Indices. We have used squared and cubed but let’s practise using higher powers. In the video, it shows how to use a calculator. The button on your calculator may look like this: ^.
Try the fluency questions and then do the mymaths task on higher powers.
Having revised indices, let’s now try combining indices and negative numbers. Firstly, watch the video. Listen carefully to the comment about brackets at the end. How you write your negative numbers is really important!
Try the questions.
There are lots of different investigations in the pdf. You can choose the order in which you answer the questions.
