Following on from the resource ‘Indices’, this resource from Susan Wall contains four activities designed to explore the rules of indices as well as differentiating and integrating functions containing indices.
The rules of indices with algebraic expressions: This activity is a matching exercise with algebraic statements involving negative indices and fractional indices.
Dominoes: is a loop card activity involving negative indices and fractional indices.
Differentiation and integration involving indices: A large, multi-tiered activity matching equivalent functions, differentials and integrals.
Marking: In this activity, students are given questions and solutions to a number of differentiation and integration questions. Students are required to mark the work. The solutions contain many common errors that are made. Students should mark the work for accuracy, correct solutions where necessary and give advice to help the candidate therefore explain what the error was and how to correct it.
