# Large Numbers in Standard Form

### Large Numbers in Standard Form

Students learn how to convert between large numbers written in ordinary and standard form.  As learning progress more able students are challenged to find the sum and difference of numbers written in standard form.At the start of the lesson students recap multiplying and dividing by positive and negative powers of ten.  The end of the lesson is used to address common misconceptions when performing basic calculations with numbers in standard form.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to write large ordinary numbers in standard form.
• Most students should be able to convert between ordinary and standard form for large numbers.
• Some students should be able to calculate with large numbers in standard 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 […]
