Standard form is a way to write really large or very small numbers. In this lesson, students will learn how to write very large or very small numbers in standard form and how to convert between ordinary and standard forms. Students will also get the opportunity to apply what they have learned to problems. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is great for any student as standard form appears in both the higher and foundation papers at GCSE level.
