#### Index laws presentation (part 1) - AC Year 8 Maths - Number and Algebra (Index laws)

(0)
Description This investigation helps students review exponentiation and extend it to build understanding of index laws 1-3. This is suitable for the teaching and learning of Australian Curriculum Year 8 Mathematics (Number and Algebra). Buying this presentation will save you around 3 hours of time creating it. Sequencing Before this task: students must understand multiplication and whole number place value to 1 million. For students who already recall exponentiation from Year 7, you can skip the first chunk of this presentation. After this task: students can study index laws 4-5. Rigorous fluency practice is recommended once this presentation is complete and once you have checked their understanding. The next step is index law 6, index laws on pronumerals, and logarithms. Timing This task will take approximately 60 minutes to present for whole-class instruction, or 40-80 minutes for independent student learning in a flipped classroom. The optional extension task will take around 5 minutes to complete. Answers Answers are not provided in this product. Please check back later for a link. Learning Intention Figure out the rules of exponentiation and how to use them in different situations. Success Criteria You explained how exponentiation works. You drew exponentiation. You described square and cube numbers. You explained how the zero index works. You converted numbers from base-exponent to factor form. You recalled index laws 1-3 and used them fluently. Australian Curriculum references Number and Algebra Use index notation with numbers to establish the index laws with positive integral indices and the zero index (ACMNA182) Mathematics Understanding Recognising multiplication and its relationship to exponentiation, converting base-exponent form to factor form Mathematics Fluency Using index laws 1-3 to simplify calculations involving numbers in base-exponent form Mathematics Reasoning Generalising multiple multiplication to exponentiation, explaining and proving how index laws work General Capabilities Numeracy: solve complex problems by estimating and calculating using efficient mental, written and digital strategies, identify trends using number rules and relationships Critical and Creative Thinking: critically analyse information and evidence according to criteria such as validity and relevance, predict possibilities, and identify and test consequences when seeking solutions and putting ideas into action, assess assumptions in their thinking and invite alternative opinions

#### Model building project design brief template (editable) - AC Year 7/8 Design and Tech - Architecture

(0)
Description This document is a useful tool for students undertaking the Model building project for Australian Curriculum Year 7/8 Design and Technologies (Technologies in society: architecture), available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12536091 Buying this document will save you around 30 minutes of time creating it. This is the editable version, allowing you to change and modify the task as you like it. Please respect my copyright by not distributing or selling modified versions of this document. Sequencing Before this task: students must understand the design process, understand the purpose and audience of a design brief, be able to generate meaningful and evaluable success criteria, be able to prepare instructions and design specifications for a project they have not yet undertaken, be able to justify design choices, and be able to evaluate their own designed solutions based on their own success criteria. After this task: students can adapt this document to any design and technologies concept involving the creation of a physical product. Timing This document will take approximately 10 minutes to read and interpret, then can support 2-3 hours of work within the entire project.
