# Math Index Laws Exponent Set B 01 With Algebra Multiplication Mostly for Years/Grade 7, 8 and 9

This is the first video in the new set which goes through the basics of how index law ‘1’ works, using Algebra. I give students verbal pictures and simple explanations that help students to understand and remember the concepts, as well as warn them about the common errors and misunderstandings.

This is the first of many short videos in this playlist. If it is too simple, jump ahead to videos 2, 3 or 4 etc. There are also revision videos included in this playlist to help you understand better and not get confused into making errors.

After 40 years of enjoyable and rewarding teaching, I still love and continue to teach. It still amazes me how I continue to still think of better ways of teaching mathematical concepts and I also continue to discover methods of explaining things that help students 'better' understand and become more successful at remembering the concepts.

A word of warning from what I have repeatedly seen over the years - most of my videos are placed in a logical or reasonably sequential order and if you watch the first or second video in a playlist and feel comfortable with the concepts, please go to the last video in the playlist to check if you really are okay. Each video in a playlist usually becomes progressively more complex and the 'latter' or 'last' video will often contain common assessment questions where students are known to make errors.

I also often include some revision / consolidation / mixture videos in the playlist which I know are crucial to assist with student success in assessments.

I hope that you find this very helpful and a blessing in your studies.
