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.
