# Writing small numbers in Standard Form

Students learn how to convert between ordinary and standard form for numbers less than 1.  More able students are challenged to convert between fractions and standard form.

The start of the lesson is used to recap writing large numbers in standard form.  The plenary is used to assess the progress made against the learning objectives through a typical exam question.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to write ordinary numbers less than 1 in standard form.
• Most students should be able to convert between numbers less than 1 in ordinary and standard form.
• Some students should be able to write a fraction less than 1 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 […]
