In this unit, students will learn how to use powers and roots in Mathematics. They will begin by looking at square and cube numbers and their corresponding roots (including negative square roots). They will then move on to looking at index notation, calculating with indices, the index laws, and working with the order of operations and brackets. Finally, students will study how to use calculators to solve problems with indices.
