This unit follows on from the "Powers and Square
Roots" unit in the 'first and second years of secondary
education' section. In this earlier unit we focused on whole base
numbers raised to the power of a positive whole number and
examined their properties. In this unit there was also an introduction
to the concept of the square root.
This unit focuses on numbers raised to whole number and
fractional indices and will generalise the rules which were
examined in the earlier unit.
