This resource combines a treasure hunt with a code-breaking activity to test students' index and substitution skills.

Use index laws to simplify each expression and create a loop of 15 cards, then substitute in values for x and y to decipher the hidden message.

Expressions include negative and fractional indices and range from simple multiplications to algebraic fractions and raising brackets to a power.

Please look at Card-K
I checked this and could not find a match other than Card-O.
Is this supposed to be a direct match?

Used this with Y12 as review/revision. Worked very nicely - lots of discussion.
