You have just saved me. I have a Year 7 (11 year old) student who started discussing me why (-1)! (-1 factorial) is infinity and what he thinks 0^0 is worth. He was also fascinated with e^ipi+1=0 because it has so many numbers that are anomalies) I have just put this website on my favourites bar! Thank you so much. I look forward to trying them out.

Whilst these PowerPoints are very good, I do believe that they jump too fast for most pupils in comprehensive schools and a lot of scaffolding steps in between are missed

Dear Dr Frost, please forgive my ignorance but I really love your resources, but how do I easily remove the green squares to reveal the answers? It doesn't seem to work when I press slide show on powerpoint - the only way I can do it is by clicking on the green box and then fiddling around to make it transparent? Many thanks

Because 8 = 2^3 therefore 8^9 = 2^27
