Index Law 3 and the Zero Power

Indices and surds (Year 9)

Year 9

Building on the previous videos in the series, this video looks at Index Law 3 and the Zero Power. The zero power is really handy and used in a lot of exams to try and trick students! So I spend more time looking at what a zero power means and how it can be used to trick you. I then look at how Index Law 3 works (which is powers of powers). There are lots of worked examples and explanations which are designed to help you understand what you are doing. No more confusing maths! Using a mix of humour and explanation I hope to ensure that the Mathematics taught in this topic is entertaining and helpful for all levels of students.
