# Calculations With Standard Index Form

To calculate with numbers written in standard form students are taught how to apply the rules of indices to a base of ten.  As learning progresses they are challenged to substitute standard form numbers into formulae.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the product and quotient of two numbers written in Standard Index Form.
• Most students should be able to calculate the total, difference, product and quotient of two numbers written in Standard Index Form.
• Some students should be able to substitute numbers written in Standard Index Form into formulae.
