# Multiplying and Dividing Numbers by 0.1 and 0.01

Students learn how to use the place value table and written methods to multiply and divide numbers by 0.1 and 0.01.  As learning progress more able students multiply and divide with numbers in index form.

At the start of the lesson students recap multiplying and dividing by a power of ten.  The plenary challenges students to arrange a series of calculations in ascending order.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to multiply a number by 0.1 and 0.01.
• Most students should be able to multiply and divide a number by 0.1 and 0.01.
• Some students should be able to multiply and divide a number by a power of ten in index form.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]

#### Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
