Description

Simplify the expressions, in terms of y, with indices to find the term relating to each letter, then crack the code to reveal a dreadful joke!

This activity covers multiplying and dividing indices as well as raising a power to a power. Two differentiated sheets are provided – the second asks students to give answers as fractions, instead of negative indices.

Worksheet is amazing,
Anything able to be made that's a bit harder/challenging?

Love how both sheets give the same answer. Great joke to give out to a class of likely lads.
