# Writing Numbers in Standard Index Form

Using place value students learn how to convert ordinary numbers to standard index form.  As learning progresses they interchange between ordinary and index form notation and use calculator methods to check their work.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to convert numbers greater than one to and from standard form.
• Most students should be able to convert numbers greater or less than one to and from standard form.
• Some students should be able to perform calculations using the rules of indices with numbers written in standard form.
